“Eleventh Circuit Clears the Road to Arbitration for Last-Mile Drivers”

Lexology has published this article by Seyfarth Shaw attorneys Lennon B. Haas, Kyle Petersen and Kevin M. Young, discussing the recent decision in Hamrick v. Partsfleet, LLC, in which, as the article notes, the Eleventh Circuit made clear “that delivering goods that originate out of state is not enough to trigger the [Federal Arbitration Act] exemption” to arbitration of claims involving workers engaged in interstate commerce. The article notes that the Eleventh Circuit decision conflicts with cases emanating from the First and Ninth Circuits, which “inches this important issue closer to the type of split that might command attention from the Supreme Court.”
