“Ohio District Court Rejects Multiple Challenges to Electronically Signed Arbitration Agreement”

Greg Mersol of Baker & Hostetler has this article, available at Lexology, discussing the decision by an Ohio federal court in Reulbach v. Life Time Fitness, Inc., in which the court, enforcing a class action waiver, compelled arbitration of employment claims. As the article explains, “[t]he Reulbach decision reflects that some plaintiffs will continue to make challenges to arbitration agreements with class waivers but that courts are now far less accepting of them in the wake of [the United States Supreme Court’s decision three years ago in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis]. The takeaway for the article is that “[c]ourts will uphold electronically signed arbitration agreements even if the plaintiff does not remember reading them.”
