Lacayo v. Catalina Restaurant Group Inc.

(California Court of Appeal) – Dismissed part of appeal and affirmed part.

The trial court granted Defendant’s motion as to Plaintiffs individual claims, allowed the arbitrator to decide the class action claims, and denied the motion as to the UCL claim. The appeals court found that the motion that granted arbitration could not be appealed and found no error in the denial of arbitration for the UCL claim.
