A: To find out if you are included in the lawsuit Case 2:23-cv-08577 under California law, you would need to review the class definition or scope of the lawsuit. Here are some typical steps you can take:

1. Obtain a copy of the complaint or class certification order. These legal documents define who is included as a class member in the lawsuit.

2. Review the class definition carefully. It will specify criteria like:

- Types of claims covered (e.g. product liability, employment discrimination)

- Geographic location (e.g. residents of California)

- Time period when violations allegedly occurred

- Other criteria like product/service purchased, employment status, etc.

3. Determine if you meet all the criteria in the class definition based on your personal situation and experiences related to the allegations in the lawsuit.

4. You can also contact the attorneys representing the class. Provide them details about your potential claim, and they can advise if you likely fall within the certified class.

5. Monitor the court's website and any official notification program approved by the court for updates on deadlines to opt-out or file a claim if you are a class member.

The specific steps may vary, but carefully reviewing the class definition documents and potentially consulting the class counsel attorneys is generally the best way to confirm if you are included in a class action lawsuit in California or any other state.
