Porter v. Nabors Drilling USA, L.P., 15-16985

In a lawsuit asserting a claim under California's Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (PAGA), the court grants defendant's motion to recognize an automatic stay, triggered by its filing for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, where the exception to an automatic stay established in 11 U.S.C section 362(b)(4), described as the governmental regulatory or governmental unit exception, did not apply to a claim brought by a private party under PAGA.
