Brad Davis Published by the Washington Legal Foundation
The Washington Legal Foundation recently published Brad Davis in its latest Legal Opinion Letter. In his article “Federal Court Finds Arbitration Act’s Transportation-Worker Exemption Inapplicable to Local Delivery Driver,” Brad discusses a recent decision from the Southern District of Florida, Bean v. ES Partners, Inc. There, the court addressed the following question: can a local delivery driver who never crosses state lines escape arbitration, even when the goods he delivers are manufactured out of state? No, the court said. Bean joins a growing number of courts that have weighed in on whether such workers qualify as transportation workers engaged in interstate commerce under the Section 1 exemption of the Federal Arbitration Act.
