Duran v. US Bank: Cal. Supreme Court Schedules Oral Argument

In Duran v. U.S. Bank N.A., the Court of Appeal reversed a trial court judgment in favor of a class of allegedly misclassified bank officers and ordered the class decertified. Our blog post on the Court of Appeal's decision is here.

The California Supreme Court granted review and yesterday announced that oral argument will be held on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at 9:00 a.m., in San Francisco.

The Court's web page (here) states the issues as follows:
This case presents issues concerning the certification of class actions in wage and hour misclassification litigation and the use of representative testimony and statistical evidence at trial of such a class action. 
The Court's decision should be published within 90 days of oral argument, which would be June 2, 2014.
