Harris v. Superior Court: Supreme Court Says Court of Appeal Erred in Finding Insurance Adjustors Not Exempt

The California Supreme Court has issued its decision in Harris v. Superior Court (Liberty Mutual Insurance).  I will post more later, but for the time being, here's the headline: 
This litigation tests whether certain insurance company claims adjusters are exempt employees, not entitled to overtime compensation under the Labor Code and regulations of the California Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC or Commission).  Reviewing the trial court’s denial of a summary adjudication motion, the Court of Appeal held the adjusters are not exempt employees as a matter of law.  In doing so, the Court of Appeal misapplied the substantive law.  We reverse.
