Partner Brent Hockaday is presenting “#MeToo Takes a Bite out of Arbitration” for the West LegalEdcenter.
Monday, May 23, 2022
The presentation will explore the recently enacted federal law “Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act of 2021,” which amends the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) eliminating forced arbitration of sexual assault and sexual harassment claims.
It will cover the origins of this law and analyze situations where there are claims involving both arbitrable and non-arbitrable claims in the same litigation. The program will further address both how courts are inclined to address these situations and the different strategic considerations for attorneys when faced with the prospect of bilateral litigation and arbitration.
