Valencia v. SCIS Air Security Corp.Annotate this Case
Plaintiff filed suit against SCIS, alleging that it violated California meal and rest break
laws and wage laws. The trial court concluded that plaintiff's claims are preempted by the federal Airline Deregulation Act, 49 U.S.C. 41713(b)(1). The court reversed and remanded, concluding that it is pure speculation and conjecture that requiring SCIS to provide meal and rest breaks consistent with California labor and employment law would have any relation to airline prices, routes, or services. The court did not reach the merits of whether class certification is appropriate or whether SCIS complied with state laws.
