Jenner & Block Partner Laurie Edelstein spoke to Law360 about major litigation that California lawyers will be watching this year. Among those cases are the US Women's National Soccer Team's high-profile appeal of the dismissal of its $66.7 million Equal Pay Act claims against the US Soccer Federation. "Aside from the specific issues in this case, the case raises important gender and pay equity issues that women face regularly," Ms. Edelstein told Law360. She also highlighted a case that could have implications for the economic loss doctrine in California. And she’s keeping an eye on legal battles challenging AB 5, a state law that made it more difficult to classify workers as independent contractors, and Proposition 22, which exempts some app-based ride-hailing and delivery companies from having to reclassify their drivers as employees under AB 5.
