Supreme Court activity for the week of November 15, 2010

The California Supreme Court held its (usually) weekly conference on November 17, 2010.  Notable results include:

  • On a Petition for Review, review was granted in  in Kirby v. Immoos Fire Protection, Inc. (July 27, 2010), covered previously here.  The issue under review is limited as follows:  "Does Labor Code section 218.5 govern attorney's fees awarded on a cause of action alleging violation of the statutorily mandated wage payment for missed meal and rest periods (Lab. Code, [sec.] 226.7), or is an attorney's fee award governed by Labor Code section 1194?"
  • On a Request for Depublication, depublication was denied in Nelson v. Pearson Ford Co. (July 15, 2010).  Prior comments from this blog are here.
