Former California Governor Schwarzenegger Hired Law To File Amicus Brief In “Proposition 22- 2020 Initiative”

CALIFORNIA (June 21, 2022)—today Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hired Baker Botts to file an amicus brief in Castellanos v. State of California, a case brought by several ride-hailing drivers and the Service Employees International Union challenging Proposition 22 – a 2020 initiative that allowed app-based transportation and delivery companies such as Uber and Lyft to classify their workers as independent contractors., reported National Law Journal.

California Proposition 22, the App-Based Drivers as Contractors and Labor Policies Initiative, was on the California ballot  as an initiated state statute on November 3, 2020. Proposition 22 was approved.

On Aug. 20, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch  ruled that two sections of Proposition 22 were unconstitutional and that the measure as a whole was unenforceable. Proponents announced they would appeal the ruling.
