Court of Appeals Spices Up Class Certification "Death Knell" Laws For Chipotle

FordHarrison LLP • July 08, 2015
Executive Summary: In a case of first impression, the California Court of Appeals recently held that, unlike cases where only class allegations are asserted, California's "death knell" doctrine does not apply to cases where class certification is denied and representative claims under California's Private Attorney General Act (PAGA) move forward. See Munoz v. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. BC447232 (June 30, 2015). The court's decision means the plaintiffs cannot appeal the denial of class certification until after litigation of their representative PAGA claims.
