Following Rittmann v., Inc. (9th Cir. 2020) 971 F.3d 904, this decision holds that drivers who drove goods from in-state warehouses to Domino’s franchisees in California are workers engaged in interstate commerce within the meaning of the exception to the FAA’s scope.  These drivers handled the last stage of transportation of the goods from out-of-state sources to the California franchisees.  The stopover at the California warehouse didn’t break the interstate chain of distribution, of which these drivers performed the final in-state stage.  This holding is not impacted by the Supreme Court’s decision in  Southwest Airlines Co. v. Saxon (2022) 142 S. Ct. 1783.
