9th Circuit arbitration decision could impact employment disputes

Ruling continues trend of courts deferring to AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion when it comes to arbitration clauses

The 9th Circuit handed down an arbitration-related decision yesterday that could help corporate defendants in employment disputes.

In Matthew Kilgore v. KeyBank, a flight school student sued a bank, claiming it fraudulently approved his student loan when it knew that the school he was attending was about to go out of business. The plaintiff sought class action status. He also sought an injunction to prevent the bank and a loan servicer from reporting loan defaults to credit agencies and from enforcing any promissory notes against students.
