Class Certification Against Sears Denied

Plaintiff William Dailey sued on behalf of a class of managers and assistant managers of Sears auto centers, alleging that they violated California’s wage and hour laws. Dailey attempted to certify the class, alleging uniform policy and practice resulted in their treatment with regard to meal and rest breaks and overtime. The trial court granted Sears’ motion to preclude and denied Dailey’s motion to certify, because too many individual issues were involved. Dailey appealed, saying a more detailed explanation for the court’s ruling on certification was necessary. The record was determined to contain enough evidence that Dailey’s theory of liability wasn’t amenable to class treatment. Dailey v. Sears, Roebuck
