May 17, 2021

"[T]he court found the arbitration agreement's listed examples of claims which should be arbitrated were more personal to Plaintiff -- e.g., wrongful discharge, harassment, and leave disputes -- and thus Plaintiff's ERISA claim, which Plaintiff brought on behalf of the Plan and the Plan's other participants, was not of the same type as those enumerated in the arbitration agreement." [Cooper v. Ruane Cunniff & Goldfarb Inc., No. 17-2805 (2d Cir. Mar. 4, 2021)]
