California’s AB 5: Trucking association calls for Ninth Circuit to rehear case

CTA asks court to rehear AB5 case
The California Trucking Association (CTA) on Thursday officially filed for the Ninth Circuit Court to rehear the controversial AB 5 contractor law.

The move had been long expected, as the CTA said earlier this month that it planned to seek an en banc review of the case, which would require all 29 judges in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to vote yay or nay on rehearing the case.

If a simple majority votes in favor, 11 of the judges will rehear the case that the CTA says could put up to 70,000 owner-operators in the Golden State out of business.
