Los Angeles Daily Journal Publishes Article by Robert J. McKennon Entitled “Ruling Could Send Shock Waves Through ERISA Claims Industry”

On August 28, 2019, the Los Angeles Daily Journal published an article written by Robert J. McKennon of the McKennon Law Group PC.  The article addresses a recent case by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Dorman v. Charles Schwab, which overruled the Ninth Circuit precedent Amaro v. Continental Can Co. and enforced an arbitration clause in a pension plan on the basis that Supreme Court precedent had impliedly overruled its ruling in Amaro.  Given the expansive reading of arbitration clauses by the Supreme Court and now the Ninth Circuit, it is likely that more ERISA pension claims will be litigated on an individualized basis and will be litigated in arbitration proceedings.  For a full view of the article, take a look at our blog, here.
