As part of a settlement of a prior wage and hour lawsuit, employee signed an arbitration agreement with employer.  Four years later, plaintiff brought this PAGA claim against employer.  This decision affirms an order denying the employer’s motion to compel arbitration.  The State of California is the real party in interest in a PAGA action.  It did not sign the arbitration agreement with the employer.  When the employee signed the arbitration agreement, he was not deputized to represent the state.  So the arbitration agreement could not bind the state to arbitrate its PAGA claim.
