Public Justice Statement on Supreme Court Win in ‘Morgan v. Sundance‘
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in our case, Morgan v. Sundance, Inc., ruling unanimously in favor of our client Robyn Morgan.
Public Justice Access to Justice Co-Director Karla Gilbride issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision:
“We are pleased that the Supreme Court announced today in no uncertain terms that the Federal Arbitration Act does not support judge-made procedural rules favoring arbitration over litigation or favoring arbitration agreements over other types of contracts.
All Robyn Morgan wants in this case is to be paid fairly by her former employer and to have her legal arguments treated fairly by the courts, without a thumb on the scale because those arguments happen to involve arbitration.
We are hopeful that today’s decision will bring Ms. Morgan a step closer to a fair result in her dispute with Sundance, and we’re also hopeful that it will send a message to all corporations who include arbitration provisions in their contracts with workers and consumers that those arbitration provisions will be treated just like any other term in their contract—no worse, but also no better.”
