Supreme Court to Issue Decision on 17200 and PAGA

The Cal. Supreme Court just announced that its decision in Arias v. Superior Court is forthcoming. I blogged about Arias here. The issues presented are:
(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, section 2699) bring them as a class action?
I predicted that "the Court is likely to answer: (1) Yes; (2) No." I can't wait to see how good my crystal ball is.
