California employers gained a recent victory from a California state appeals court, which rejected every argument the plaintiffs made in an attempt to counter the U.S. Supreme Court’s pro-arbitration, anti class-action ruling in AT&T v. Concepcion.

This recent decision in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles, many attorneys say, could change California’s current employee-friendly position on arbitration.

The California Second Appellate District ruled the Concepcion overruled the state’s Supreme Court decision in Gentry v. Superior Court. This ruling affirmed a trial court’s decision to compel individual arbitration and strike class claims in a wage-and-hour suit lodged against the limousine company CLS Transportation Los Angeles LLC.

CLS Transportation Los Angeles is represented by David F. Faustman of Fox Rothschild LLP.
