U.S. Supreme Court Denies Rehearing in Viking River Cruises

On August 22, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the plaintiff-employee’s petition to reconsider the decision in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v. Moriana case.  The high court also issued a final judgment, leaving intact the Court’s ruling on statutory standing under PAGA.

While the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion is now final, the California Supreme Court has granted review in several cases pertaining to employment arbitration agreements and PAGA.  The grant of review in these cases is a clear signal that the California Supreme Court intends to clarify statutory standing under PAGA in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Viking River Cruises.
