Appeals Court Denies Class-Action Lawsuit Against Sutter Health Over Meal, Rest Breaks
Earlier this month, an appeals court rejected an effort by registered nurses to combine three proposed class-action lawsuits into one large class-action suit against Sutter Health for allegedly failing to provide meal and rest breaks. The court ruled that the plaintiffs' lawyers were unable to demonstrate that the workers received common treatment. Sutter Health said it is "pleased" with the court's ruling, while the plaintiffs' lawyers are considering appealing to the California Supreme Court.
