Concerns About AB 51

CA Judge Temporarily Blocks Forced Arbitration Law 

U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller ruled that the CA Chamber of Commerce and other business groups had raised serious concerns about AB 51, a bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom due to arbitration agreements that obscured allegations of sexual harassment and assault. 

Mueller issued a temporary restraining order halting enforcement of the law and set a hearing for Jan. 10, 2020 to consider the groups’ motion for a preliminary injunction, which if granted could indefinitely delay its implementation in CA.
