6th Circ. Hands Employers A Victory On Class Arbitration
Law360 quoted Cleveland Partner Jim Kurek in the November 6 article "6th Circ. Hands Employers A Victory On Class Arbitration."
The article cited the 6th Circuit's ruling that courts, not arbitrators, should decide whether class arbitration is permissible under an arbitration pact.
Jim commented on the use of an arbitrator versus a court .
"With a court decision you have a much clearer right of appeal," Jim said. "With an arbitrator, the ability to appeal is much, much more limited."
