NINTH U.S. CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS
Civil Procedure
When a district court awards complete relief on one claim, rendering it unnecessary to reach alternative claims, the alternative claims cannot be deemed unsuccessful for the purpose of calculating a fee award. The "common course of conduct" standard from Hensley v. Eckerhart is the correct standard of "relatedness" for claims under the Equal Access to Justice Act. In evaluating whether the government's position is substantially justified, the court looks at whether the government's and the underlying agency's positions were justified as a whole and not at each stage of the litigation.

CALIFORNIA COURT OF APPEAL
Employment Law
Generally, a collective bargaining agreement providing for arbitration of employment grievances does not provide for arbitration of a worker's claims based on violations of state anti-discrimination or retaliation statutes, nor do federal labor relations laws preempt such claims.
