Petitions to watch | Conference of April 3
on Apr 3, 2015 at 2:00 pm
At its Conference on April 3, 2015, the Court will consider petitions seeking review of issues such whether an employee’s right to join a collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act is waivable, the elimination of same-day voter registration in North Carolina, and severance provisions in arbitration agreements.
This edition of “Petitions to watch” features petitions raising issues that Tom has determined to have a reasonable chance of being granted, although we post them here without consideration of whether they present appropriate vehicles in which to decide those issues. Our policy is to include and disclose all cases in which Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, represents either a party or an amicus in the case, with the exception of the rare cases in which Goldstein & Russell represents the respondent(s) but does not appear on the briefs in the case.
