Attorneys on different sides of two pending suits over California's new worker classification law discuss aspects of AB 5 and the challenges it faces. Jim Manley (Pacific Legal Foundation) seeks to enjoin the law on behalf of freelance journalists whose First Amendment rights, he says, the new law violates. Stacey Leyton (Altshuler Berzon LLP) is defending AB 5 on behalf of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and says the law should withstand a constitutional and preemption challenge brought by a trucking industry group.
