Your first taste of Brinker in 2011, compliments of Hernandez v. Chipotle

On January 26, 2011, the Supreme Court held a weekly conference.  Of particular note was the "GRANTED and Held" Order in the matter of Hernandez v. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.  Hernandez was striking for how vehemently it ignored Jaimez when it chose to follow the most anti-employee decisions of various federal courts and then enunciate a meal period standard that is the functional equivalent of the standard applicable to rest breaks.  See prior blog post here.  Maybe it means nothing at all other than the Supreme Court doesn't want published meal period cases floating around while Brinker is pending.  Or maybe the Supreme Court is close to the finish line on Brinker and views Hernandez as inconsistent with its intended holdings.
