Mass Arbitration Filings: How are Arbitral Institutions Handling Them?

Joan Stearns Johnson, Elizabeth Carter, Neil Currie, Allen Waxman, Henry R. Chalmers, and Rachel Gupta

The mass filing of multiple individual arbitration demands—as a work around to class action waivers in employment and consumer contracts—has become a hot topic in the wake of Abernathy v. DoorDash, 438 F. Supp. 3d 1062 (N.D. Calif. 2020). Our panel, including representatives from the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, and CPR, will discuss how arbitral institutions are handling the issue and what the future may hold for this practice.
