This week's show looks at a long-awaited ruling from the California Supreme Court, in which the court unanimously held for a plaintiff seeking the contact information of his fellow employees, as part of a meal- and rest-break PAGA action. Glenn Danas, who argued the case before the state's high court, joins us to chat about the various arguments involved, over the disputed burden to the defendant, the privacy rights of the fellow employees, and how the foundational principles of both discovery rules generally and the Private Attorney General Act specifically helped carry the day for his client.

Then, Brian Wenter will discuss the U.S. Supreme Court's latest take on the Takings Doctrine, in Murr v. Wisconsin, decided this past term. He says the Court had an ideal chance to clarify a fairly abstruse doctrine, but ended up making it even more complicated.
