Newspaper carrier decisions achieve opposite results
Several newspaper companies currently are defending potential class-action lawsuits brought by newspaper carriers claiming they were improperly classified as independent contractors. Two recent decisions in California reached opposite results. In Sotelo v. MediaNews Group Inc., a newspaper for the first time in California defeated an attempt to certify a class in carrier litigation alleging misclassification, wage/hour violations and other labor claims. In Dalton v. Lee Publications, dba North County Times, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied 2-1 without opinion the newspaper's petition for permission to appeal the district court's order granting class certification. The lower court had certified a class of approximately 800 current and former home delivery newspaper carriers after concluding they had met the requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
