Birmingham Quoted in Law360 on Last-Mile Drivers

20 August 2021 Law360 News

Partner John Birmingham Jr. was quoted in a Law360 article entitled, “Last-Mile Drivers: Part of Interstate Commerce?” which discusses the debate concerning whether last-mile drivers are exempt from federal arbitration law, which remains unclear as courts take different approaches to whether these workers are involved in interstate commerce.

The FAA is a "strong lever" for those who want to enforce arbitration agreements, said Birmingham. "I think it's a technical legal issue, but it could have pretty wide-ranging ramifications depending upon which direction it goes," he added.
