On June 21, 2021, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the California Trucking Association’s (“CTA”) petition for a rehearing in the AB5 case CTA v. Bonta.
Two days later, on June 23, 2021, the 9th Circuit granted CTA’s request to keep its preliminary injunction in effect while the CTA petitions the U.S. Supreme Court for review. The injunction prohibits the enforcement of AB5 against motor carriers. It will remain in effect until the US Supreme Court either denies CTA’s petition for review, or grants review of the petition and makes a final ruling on it.
CTA has 150 days to file its petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.
