On January 12, 2010, the Court of Appeal (Second Appellate District, Division One) issued an informative but unpublished opinion in Jaimez v. DAIOHS USA, Inc., et al. A number of requests to publish that opinion which addresses several novel aspects of wage & hour claims and class certification. David Arbogast (Arbogast & Berns, LLP) and I authored a request for publication on behalf of CAOC and CELA. It now appears from the docket that an Order granting publication has been filed. I would assume that the published opinion will appear on the California Courts website in the next day or so.
I will post some discussion of the case this evening.
The published opinion is now available.
