Weekly California State And Federal Class Action Filings Predominantly Labor Law Cases

As a service to California class action defense attorneys, we provide weekly, unofficial summaries of the legal categories for new class actions filed in California state and federal courts in the Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, San Diego, San Mateo, Oakland/Alameda and Orange County areas. We include only those categories that include 10% or more of the class action filings during the relevant timeframe. This report covers the time period from September 22 – September 26, 2006. Approximately 40 class action lawsuits were filed in these California state and federal courts during that time period, of which 19 (48%) involved employment law claims. Demonstrating the predominance of labor law class actions in California, not a single other category of cases satisfied the 10% threshold requirement to be listed in this report.
