Ninth Circuit Affirms Win by SSS Regarding Wage and Hour Class Action

A Fortune 500 company hired Spotswood Sansom & Sansbury LLC to develop a national litigation strategy for a wave of wage-and-hour class and collective actions asserting joint-employment theories. Spotswood attorneys developed and executed a strategy that resulted in precedential opinions from several different venues and gutted the class theories. In the lead case, Spotswood attorneys won summary judgment on the merits of the individual plaintiff’s claims prior to a decision on class certification and, in the process, clarified a murky area of California jurisprudence. Spotswood attorneys persuaded the Ninth Circuit to affirm the case in its entirety.
