Fulbright lawyers Jim Evans and Ryan McCoy enforced an employment class action waiver in the defense of a suit brought against U-Haul Co., of California. In ruling on U-Haul's motion to enforce the class action waiver clause in its agreement with its employees, the Los Angeles Superior Court found U-Haul's employment agreement to be enforceable and fair.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the Los Angeles trial court dismissed the class claims alleged in Aboulatifa v. U-Haul Co. of California based upon a class action waiver provision in the plaintiff's employment agreement, and ordered the individual claim to be arbitrated.

More than seven years ago, Fulbright partner Jim Evans played an integral role in the drafting of the U-Haul employment agreement and its class action waiver provision. Fulbright has enforced the class action waiver in multiple trial courts, and before the California Court of Appeal.
