Transportation Year in Review

2024 Transportation Annual Year in Review

Barclay Damon’s Transportation Team is pleased to present its annual summary of developments in transportation law, Transportation Annual Year in Review. This year’s publication looks at cases decided in 2023 by courts around the country and other critical occurrences.

As we were editing this year’s update, the new wage and hour regulations from the US Department of Labor were released. They represent the DOL’s latest guidelines for determining whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor and will certainly impact the trucking industry. Read more about the regulations in Section 3. On a related note, the court case California Trucking Association v. Bonta involving AB-5, California’s version of the ABC test, is back before the federal judge who initially heard the case. On the same day, news spread that the US Supreme Court had declined to hear an appeal in the Ye case, described Section 2, on the disputed issue of whether a freight broker can be found liable for negligently selecting a motor carrier. These developments and many more are covered here, and we’ll continue to monitor and analyze them as they develop.

With this edition, we mark the full retirement of our colleague Phil Bramson, who has continued to work on the annual update in his semi-retirement. His exemplary work on this report over decades will guide us going forward.

As always, we look forward to hearing from you.
