As a resource to California defense attorneys, we provide weekly, unofficial summaries of the legal categories for new class action lawsuits 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 past week, 43 new class action cases were filed in these courts, and after a one-week break labor law class action lawsuits returned to its familiar spot atop the list of new weekly class action filings.
