Amalgamated Transit Union v. Superior Ct. (First Transit, Inc.), B191879
An individual-s statutory right to sue in a representative capacity, conferred under the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 and under the unfair competition law, may not be assigned to a third party. Section 17203 of the unfair competition law, as amended by Proposition 64, providing that representative claims may be brought only if the injured claimant complies with Section 382 of the Code of Civil Procedure, means that private representative claims must meet the procedural requirements applicable to class action lawsuits.
