PRACHASAISORADEJ v. RALPHS GROCERY CO., B165498

Dismissal of plaintiff's suit, on grounds that it was preempted by section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act, is reversed where there was no preemption as plaintiff's claims involved independent rights that neither derive from nor require interpretation of a collective bargaining agreement.
