Domino’s Pizza General Managers Denied Class Certification in Published Decision

Domino's Pizza general managers in California sought class certification regarding misclassification claims and CDF shut down their efforts. After removing the case to federal court, we obtained a ruling denying class certification from the district court regarding all three categories of class actions permitted under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(b).  The evidence gathered and presented by CDF persuaded the district court that "this is not the typical case where a class can be certified because the class members' duties are, or can be determined to be, identical."  Jimenez v. Domino's Pizza, Inc., 238 F.R.D. 241, 253 (C.D. Cal. 2006).
