Supreme Court Announces Oral Argument in Arbitration Matter

The California Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Sonic-Calabasas A, Inc. v. Moreno on December 8, 2010, at 9:00 a.m., in Los Angeles. Sonic-Calabasas is represented David Reese of Fine Boggs & Perkins in Long Beach. Moreno is represented by Miles Locker and Rachel Folberg. It should be an interesting argument.

The case presents the following issues, as stated by the Court:
  1. Can a mandatory employment arbitration agreement be enforced prior to the conclusion of an administrative proceeding conducted by the Labor Commissioner concerning an employee's statutory wage claim?
  2. Was the Labor Commissioner's jurisdiction over employee's statutory wage claim divested by the Federal Arbitration Act under Preston v. Ferrer (2008) __ U.S. __, 128 S.Ct. 978, 169 L.Ed.2d 917?

The Supreme Court's docket is located here.
