On December 22, 2014, I posted an article on McGill v. Citibank. Click here for prior post.
On April 1, 2015, the California Supreme Court granted a petition for review, putting the issue of arbitrability in flux once again. The District Court of Appeal opinion in McGill distinguished Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles (2014) 59 Cal. 4th 348, holding that a true Private Attorney General Action is properly a “state” action, while the injunctive claims of Ms. McGill were not, even though they intend to help people similarly situated. The California Supreme Court will undoubtedly examine that distinction.
