District Court evaluates proper class notice in Adoma v. University of Phoenix, Inc.

United States Senior District Court Judge Lawrence K. Karlton (Eastern District of California) examined the contents of a class notice proposed by the plaintiff in Adoma v. University of Phoenix, Inc., 2010 WL 4054109 (E.D. Cal. Oct. 15, 2010).  The lawsuit alleges state law wage & hour claims, including allegations of off-the-clock work and break violations.  The Court certified the class.  The plaintiff moved for approval of a proposed Class Notice.  The Court's Order provides a good discussion of the appropriate contents in a class notice.
