Lawrence v. Sol G. Atlas Realty Co., Inc., 15-3087

In a labor suit brought by a union member alleging that his employer, and specifically its CEO and plaintiff’s direct supervisor, discriminated and retaliated against him in violation of several federal and New York state statutes, the District Court's grant of defendants' motion to compel arbitration and dismissal of the suit are vacated and remanded for further proceedings where the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) does not contain a 'clear and unmistakable' waiver of plaintiff’s right to pursue his statutory claims in federal court.
