DLSE Memo Instructs Enforcement of Brinker Holding
New Opinion Letters

No Review of Bufil v. Dollar Financial

The Supreme Court today denied the petition for review in Bufil v. Dollar Financial Group, Inc. (2008) 162 Cal.App.4th 1193, an opinion regarding meal period and rest period claims and class certification. Bufil followed Cicairos v. Summit Logistics, Inc. (2005) 133 Cal.App.4th 949, and contained several passages that are difficult to reconcile with last week's opinion in Brinker Restaurant Corp. v. Superior Court of San Diego County (Hohnbaum) (2008) ___ Cal.App.4th ___. We previously discussed the case in a post that can be found at this link.



This is really good news. The Supreme Court had to be acutely aware of the Brinker case when they made their decision to let Bufil stand.
