On February 14, 2024, WLF filed an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an important arbitration case. The California Court of Appeal held that it was “not bound” by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Viking River decision, which addressed how to handle claims brought under California’s Private Attorney General Act. WLF’s brief explains that this is yet another in a long line of cases in which California courts have ignored the Federal Arbitration Act. WLF’s brief also details how the Court of Appeal’s decision here and the California Supreme Court’s decision in Adolph v. Uber directly conflict with Viking River.
