California Supreme Court Sides with Bus Drivers in Unanimous Decision

August 20, 2018

On August 20, 2018, the California Supreme Court issued its opinion in Connor v. First Student, Inc. (S229428), affirming the Court of Appeal Judgment in the same case.  The Court unanimously held that the Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act, or ICRAA, was not unconstitutionally vague.

The Connor case is a complete victory for the bus drivers who filed claims almost 10 years ago alleging that their employers, First Student, Inc., and First Transit, Inc., had illegally run background checks on them without proper notice and written authorization.  The case will now return to the Los Angeles Superior Court, where it will be set for trial.

The bus drivers are represented by Hunter Pyle Law and Feinberg, Jackson, Worthman & Wasow.
