Performance Team Freight Systems, Inc. v. Aleman, B259146

In a suit brought by truck drivers who entered into Independent Contractor Agreements with defendant, alleging wage claims, the trial court's denial of defendant's petition to compel arbitration on grounds that the agreements were exempt from the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), 9 U.S.C. section 1 et seq., because the individual plaintiffs were transportation workers and arbitration was not compelled under California law, is reversed where: 1) plaintiffs presented no evidence supporting their arguments that the agreements were exempt from the FAA; and 2) the arbitration provisions in the Independent Contractor Agreements were broad enough to cover the claims asserted.
