  • Brief of Amicus

    Brief of Amicus Curiae of Public Justice in Support of Plaintiffs-Appellants. This amicus brief argues that the ban on class actions embedded in the defendant's arbitration clause would effectively serve as an exculpatory clause in the context of the employees' Fair Labor Standards Act claims, and thus is unconscionable and unenforceable.
