In a major victory for employees, the United States Supreme Court has denied Ralphs’ Petition for Certiorari in Brown v. Ralphs Grocery Co., 197 Cal. App. 4th 489 (2011), which held that AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, 131 S.Ct. 1740 (2011), does not apply to representative actions brought pursuant to PAGA, the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004. Coupled with the California Supreme Court’s refusal to review Brown, the decision now stands on strong footing that unequivocally exempts PAGA from the ambit of Concepcion and the Federal Arbitration Act.
