Citing Arias v. Superior Court (2009) 46 Cal.4th 969, this decision holds that the settlement and judgment in a prior class action and PAGA suit against the employer alleging the same meal and rest break violations is res judicata of plaintiff’s similar PAGA claims.  Even though plaintiff opted out of the class action portion of the earlier case, he could not and did not opt out of the PAGA suit, so while he can recover his own individual damages in his suit, he cannot recover PAGA penalties for himself or anyone else.  Also, plaintiff lacked standing to seek PAGA penalties for Labor Code violations by the employer that occurred after the settlement of the prior suit because by that time plaintiff was no longer working for the employer.
