Cory Webster Quoted in Daily Journal Article on Dynamex

January 21, 2020

Cory Webster, Los Angeles-based senior counsel in Dykema’s litigation and appellate groups, was quoted in the Daily Journal article “State high court will hear another Dynamex case.”

The article discusses how the California Supreme Court will hear a second case questioning whether the 2018 decision in Dynamex Operations West Inc. v. Superior Court applies retroactively. The court announced that it will hear arguments in Gonzales v. San Gabriel Transit, Inc. and would defer briefing until it has reached a decision in Vazquez v. Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc.

Since both cases raise the same issue, Webster points out that the California Supreme Court will not consider a rule on Gonzalez until it resolves Vazquez under its “grant and hold” procedure.
