California Supreme Court grants petition for review filed by Ehrlich Law Firm

California Supreme Court, San Francisco, Earl Warren BuildingOn May 11, 2011, the California Supreme Court granted review in Hodge v. Aon Insurance Services, No. S191415.  The plaintiffs in Hodge are insurance adjusters employed by Cambridge Integrated Services, a third-party claims adjusting firm.

Plaintiffs claim that they were entitled to overtime compensation; Cambridge claims they were performing “administrative” work and were therefore exempt.  The trial court ruled against plaintiffs, and the Second Appellate District, Div. 8, affirmed in a published opinion, Hodge v. Aon Ins. Services (2011) 192 Cal.App.4th 1361.  That opinion has been de-published as a result of the Supreme Court’s order. The Court has deferred briefing on the case until it resolves another pending matter that deals with overtime compensation for insurance adjusters, Harris v. Superior Court.

Fewer than 25% of all appeals decided are decided by published decisions that have precedential value. Mr. Ehrlich has over 55 published appellate decisions in the state and federal courts. Very few appellate lawyers in California have comparable experience with civil appeals.
