Watch List Webinars on Pending Cases of Interest

Beginning in 2013, the State Bar of California Labor and Employment Law Section will present a series of webinars on the most recent cases of interest to employment lawyers. Organized by mediator Steven G. Pearl, the State Bar will present the webinars as soon as possible – typically within one or two weeks – after a decision is issued.  Speakers will include the attorneys who make the oral arguments and promise to be lively and informative. 

"The Watch List: Pending Cases of Interest" are posted on this blog on the lower right.  To date, seven of these cases have been argued or scheduled for oral argument: 
  • Amgen, Inc. v. Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds (SCOTUS) - Argued 11/5/12
  • Comcast Corp. v. Behrend (SCOTUS) - Argued 11/5/12
  • Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk (SCOTUS)  - To be argued 12/3/12 
  • Harris v. City of Santa Monica (Cal.) - To be argued 12/4/12 
  • Ralphs Grocery v. UFCWU (Cal.) - Argued 10/3/12 
  • U.S. Airways, Inc. v. McCutchen (SCOTUS) - To be argued 11/27/12 
  • Vance v. Ball State University (SCOTUS) - To be argued 11/26/12 
  • We likely will have a decision in Ralphs Grocery before the end of the year (it is due no later than 1/3/13).  The others we anticipate in the early Spring.  Watch this space for more information.
