Court of appeals rules in favor of CVDL client in arbitration case

April 24, 2018

The Missouri Court of Appeals ruled on April 24, 2018 that our client can proceed in court on her claims of employment discrimination.  The employer had moved to compel arbitration in the case, saying that the employee had signed an arbitration agreement when she was hired.  The employee, who is blind, argued that she had never seen the agreement and no one had told her about it.  The court agreed with our client that there was sufficient evidence that no agreement had concluded.  Tim Van Ronzelen and Shelly Kintzel represent the employee, and Kristen Johnson assisted on the brief.  Please click to learn more about our appellate and employment law  practice groups.
