The 9th Circuit withdrew its opinion in Sullivan v. Oracle Corp. on Feb. 17, citing the decision’s wide-ranging impact on employers and the unclear precedent behind it. Among several issues covered, its November 2008 panel decision applied California’s labor code to out-of-state employees working temporarily in-state at California-based companies (see InsideCounsel‘s February Circuit story). California’s labor laws are notoriously stringent, and the decision alarmed many labor attorneys.
