    California Trucking Association asks Supreme Court to hear AB5 case
    The California Trucking Association has officially petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the state’s worker classification law, Assembly Bill 5.
    The trucking group, which filed its petition on Monday, Aug. 9, argues that AB5 would force the end of the industry’s owner-operator model and would be in violation of the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (F4A), which prevents states from enforcing a law or regulation related to a price, route, or service of motor carriers.

    Texas appellate court files controversial order in $90M Werner case
    In an unusual move, a Texas court of appeals panel ordered a crash lawsuit against Werner Enterprises go straight to the full bench in a case worth $90 million.

    On Tuesday, July 27, the Texas 14h Court of Appeals finally filed an order for a case that reached the court in November 2018. Rather than resolving the case against Omaha, Neb.-based Werner, the full court decided an en banc hearing is more appropriate, completely dismissing the panel’s proposed opinion issued in March. The panel consisted of judges Meagan Hassan, Randy Wilson and Ken Wise.
