Case Name: Zullo v. Superior Court of Santa Clara County 06/21/2011
Summary: ZULLO v. SUPERIOR COURT OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY SHARON ELIZABETH ZULLO, Petitioner, v. THE SUPERIOR COURT OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Respondent; INLAND VALLEY PUBLISHING CO. , Real Party in Interest. The superior court granted Inland's petition to compel arbitration and stayed the civil proceedings. The superior court rejected the evidentiary challenge and found the agreement was not unconscionable. Petitioner argues that under the facts of this case, the superior court was bound to deny Inland's petition to compel. She further maintains that the superior court erred in overruling her objection that the acknowledgement of receipt was not properly authenticated.
Note: An employer could not force a Fair Employment and Housing Act suit into arbitration, because its arbitration policy was both procedurally and substantively unfair, the 6th District Court of Appeal ruled in an unpublished opinion.

Case Name: Zuniga v. WCAB (Interactive Trucking) 01/23/2018
Summary:  Filed 1/12/18 Zuniga v. WCAB CA1/2 (unmodified opinion)   .  Petitioner Saul Zuniga availed himself of the IMR process and then petitioned the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (Board) to disclose the names of the reviewers. Zuniga points to no authority to suggest that a statute is rendered meaningless simply because his preferred method of enforcing it is unavailable. Under section 4610. 6, subdivision (h), IMR determinations are subject to review, and Zuniga sought, and received, review of the IMR determination in his case.   In claiming that IMR reports are testimonial in character, Zuniga relies on Massachusetts Bonding & Ins.
