Herrington v. Waterstone Mortgage Corp., 17-3609

Overturned a $10 million-plus award that an employee had obtained in a wage-hour case through collective arbitration. The defendant company contended that the classwide arbitration award had to be vacated in light of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, 138 S. Ct. 1612 (2018). The Seventh Circuit agreed but remanded for the district court to conduct a threshold inquiry into whether or not the express language of the arbitration agreement permitted classwide arbitration.
