Absence of Commonality in California Meal Breaks Class Action
Aug 22, 2012
Dr. Nathan Woods submitted an expert report and was deposed on behalf of an international food service retailer in a California meal breaks class action.
Dr. Woods statistically analyzed whether the data for the proposed class exhibited sufficient commonality such that class treatment was appropriate. Specifically, he analyzed time keeping data to demonstrate there was no common pattern in potential meal break violations across individual stores and different points in time.
