Ever since Going Concern was launched in 2009, we've been following Campbell v. PricewaterhouseCoopers, the wage and hour lawsuit brought by audit associates in California. It's one of many suits floating around in the legal system but Campbell has slowly progressed through the courts, including arguments before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on whether PwC could litigate that unlicensed accountants could be exempted from overtime laws. The 9th Circuit ended up ruling in PwC's favor although it was just a bump in the road, as things seemed headed for trial earlier this year when the 9th Circuit denied the firm's petition for declassification of the suit.
But now according to the website of Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, the firm representing the class, there was a conference on June 12 where a pre-trial schedule was outlined and a definitive trial date of October 15, 2014:
