The Supreme Court has just GRANTED the Petition for Review in Brinker Restaurant Corporation, et al. v. Superior Court (Hohnbaum). View the Supreme Court docket here. Aside from Justice Werdegar, who was absent and did not participate, all other justices voted in favor of the Petition. As I obliquely suggested in this post, so much for Brinker Restaurant Corporation's prediction that this matter would quietly return to the Superior Court after turning wage & hour class action precedent on its head.
