On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of the United States rejected an Oakland trucking company’s request for writ of certiorari review in Oakland Port Services, Corp. v. Godfrey. The trucking company petitioned the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to review a California appellate court decision that California’s meal and rest break protections are not preempted by Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (FAAAA). The California Supreme Court denied an identical review on February 11, 2015, and in a display of patent foot-stomping, Oakland Port Services filed this petition before the SCOTUS on June 11, 2015, a mere month after the highest court refused to review the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Penske Logistics, LLC v. Dilts on the very same issue.

Both the Godfrey and Dilts decisions remain as legal precedent holding that California’s meal and rest break requirements are not preempted by the FAAAA, and therefore apply to trucking companies.
