#18-02 Melendez v. San Francisco Baseball Associates LLC, S245607. (A149482; 16 Cal.App.5th 339; San Francisco County Superior Court; CGC13530672, CGC15549146.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed an order denying a motion to compel arbitration in a civil action. The court limited review to the following issue: Does plaintiffs’ statutory wage claim under Labor Code section 201 require the interpretation of a collective bargaining agreement, and is it therefore preempted by section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act?

Review granted, issues limited: 01/10/2018
