  • Yesterday in Brinker v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum) the California Court of Appeal (Fourth Appellate District) ruled that a trial court's order certifying a class action involving meal and rest break and "off the clock" claims was erroneous because it "failed to properly consider the elements of plaintiffs' claims in determining if they were susceptible to class treatment."
