Briefing on the merits is complete in Troester v. Starbucks Corporation (S234969). The California Supreme Court granted the Ninth Circuit's request to decide an issue of California law. The issue, taken from the California Supreme Court's Case Summary page is:
Request under California Rules of Court, rule 8.548, that this court decide a question of California law presented in a matter pending in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The question presented is: Does the federal Fair Labor Standard Act's de minimis doctrine, as stated in Anderson v. Mt. Clemens Pottery Co., 328 U.S. 680, 692 (1946) and Lindow v. United States, 738 F.2d 1057, 1063 (9th Cir. 1984), apply to claims for unpaid wages under California Labor Code sections 510, 1194, and 1197?
