Levi & Korsinsky prevails in Motion to Compel in Chan v. Fresh & Easy, LLC, et al.
On October 11, 2016, Levi & Korsinsky prevailed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware when Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon ruled that an arbitration agreement was unenforceable under the National Labor Relations Act because it contained a class-action waiver provision. Though the Debtor-Defendant has filed a notice of appeal, the adversary proceeding is currently moving forward in a class capacity.
