Please join us for a special webinar in which Braden Core and Ryan Wright, attorneys from Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary, will discuss the prospects for arbitration with owner-operators after the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent opinion in New Prime, Inc. v. Oliveira, which limits the ability under federal law for motor carriers and owner-operators to gain enforcement of their arbitration agreements. The Scopelitis attorneys will explore what the Court decided, what it did not decide, and important considerations for fleets with a preference for arbitration going forward.
