On September 13, 2013, in Morgan v. AT & T Wireless Services, Inc., Case No. B241242, 2013 WL 5034436 (Cal. Ct. App. Sept. 13, 2013), a California Court of Appeal reversed an order denying class certification, concluding that when a defendant waives its rights to compel arbitration, the waiver applies to the entire class. As a result, companies facing consumer class action lawsuits in California must be especially mindful of their discovery tactics if they intend to move to compel arbitration.
