Statement of issues on review have finally been posted in Arias v. Superior Court (Angelo Dairy), no. S155965:
Petition for review after the Court of Appeal granted a petition for peremptory writ of mandate. This case presents the following issues:
(1) Must an employee who is suing an employer for labor law violations on behalf of himself and others under the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, section 17203) bring his representative claims as a class action?
(2) Must an employee who is pursuing such claims under the Private Attorneys General Act (Lab. Code, § 2699) bring them as a class action?
Apparently, Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1756, AFL-CIO v. Superior Court (2007) 148 Cal.App.4th 39, is the lead case. The first issue looks like an interesting one. The second one looks like a no-brainer.
