Hoffman Comments on Pending Fifth Circuit Case Over OSHA’s Use of Multiemployer Doctrine

05 August 2018 Business Insurance News

Partner Carrie Hoffman was quoted in a Business Insurance article, “Battle Lines Drawn in Multiemployer Case,” about a pending Fifth Circuit case involving OSHA’s use of the multiemployer doctrine.

“It’s always easier to practice in the 5th Circuit [which is known to be an employer-friendly jurisdiction] than the 9th Circuit,” she said. “It’s hard to imagine the 5th Circuit is going to reverse itself. I understand why Hensel Phelps [Construction Co.] is interested in pushing this issue forward in the 5th Circuit. I don’t know if it would be worth it in any other.”
