Real Estate Appraisers Get Go-ahead on Class Arbitration

The Daily Journal, November 18, 2013

By Laura Hautala

A class of real estate appraisers defeated a motion from their employer JPMorgan Chase & Co. to individually arbitrate their wage and hour claims Thursday, and will instead arbitrate claims on a class basis.

Central District Judge Josephine L. Staton ruled the court did not have the authority to decide whether the arbitration agreement allowed for class arbitration, leaving that decision to the arbitrator.

Bryan J. Schwartz represents the plaintiffs, and estimates the class members to number in the hundreds.

Daryl S. Landy and Eric Meckley of Morgan Lewis & Bockius represent JPMorgan Chase.
