Esparza v. KS Industries, L.P.  - (California Court of Appeal) - Affirming an order denying the motion to compel arbitration insofar as it denies arbitration of the Private Attorneys General Act representative claims seeking civil penalties that are paid to the Labor and Workforce Development Agency and directing additional proceedings to determine the plaintiff's intent regarding their pursuit of other claims in the case of a former employee alleging employment violations.


Baker v. Italian Maple Holdings, LLC - (California Court of Appeal) - Reversing the trial court's order denying defendant's motion to compel arbitration in the case of a woman entered into a nursing facility who executed an arbitration agreement that included a 30-day cooling off period for rescission during which time she died because the fact of her death did not render the agreements unenforceable.



Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. v. The Superior Court of Los Angeles County - (California Court of Appeal) - Issuing a preemptory writ of mandate directing the trial court to vacate a judgment confirming an arbitration panel's award and entering a new order dismissing a petition to vacate the award because the award was not an award for which the court held jurisdiction to confirm.
