Ninth Circuit Case of Morris v. Ernst and Young Is One Of The Three Cases.
On December 9, 2016, I linked my article on "The Politics of Arbitration" to this blog. In that article, I predicted, "Morris [v. Ernst and Young] could serve as a springboard for sending divergent opinions about the enforceability of arbitration provisions used to prevent 'concerted activity' by employees to the Supreme Court for review." It has now happened.
Mediator and arbitrator Ross Runkel reports today that SCOTUS agreed on January 13, 2017 to hear three cases relating to arbitration class action waivers: Morris v. Ernst and Young, NLRB v. Murphy Oil, and Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis.
