Supreme Court to Address Role of “Prejudice” in Evaluating Waiver of Arbitrability

One of the best ways for companies facing media and privacy risk to protect themselves from expensive class action litigation is by including an arbitration provision in the applicable terms and conditions. While it’s not always clear at the outset of litigation whether the plaintiff agreed to the terms, companies often have to invoke arbitration quickly out of fear that they will be found to have waived arbitration. But in its coming term, the U.S. Supreme Court is now poised to address the critical point of whether prejudice to the plaintiff is a necessary element for a finding of waiver.

Where is the cacao?

By Jeffrey K. Lewis, Attorney and Research Specialist, Ohio State University Agricultural and Resource Law Program. A California man (Plaintiff) is suing Costco Wholesale Corporation (Costco) for allegedly mislabeling Costco’s “Chocolate Almond Dipped Vanilla Ice Cream Bars” (the Product). Plaintiff argues that because of the Product’s packaging and name, he expected the Product’s chocolate would have been predominately derived from cacao beans. Plaintiff asserts that chocolate is defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and California law “as prepared from ground roasted cacao bean” and that it must be “made chiefly from cacao beans with a small amount of optional ingredients.” Based on this definition, Plaintiff claims that Costco’s packaging is misleading because the Product’s chocolate contains mostly vegetable oils and small amounts of ingredients derived from cacao beans. In his Complaint, Plaintiff argues that federal regulations require Costco to label the Product as “milk chocolate and vegetable oil coating” rather than just “chocolate.” However, the court found that neither of Plaintiff’s cited regulations support a viable theory of liability against Costco. First, the court could not find Plaintiff’s definition of chocolate anywhere in the Code of Federal Regulations. Secondly, the court held that there are no federal regulations that require a certain amount of cacao bean ingredients as opposed to vegetable oils to be used in “chocolate” and that there is no language mandating the labeling of Costco’s Product as “milk chocolate and vegetable oil coating almond dipped ice cream bars.” The court also dismissed Plaintiff’s claim that Costco engaged in consumer deception with its Product’s label. The court found that a reasonable consumer would not have been deceived by the Product’s label and that if there were any questions about the ingredients of the Product, a consumer could have resolved those questions by looking for the ingredients list on the back of the Product’s packaging.

KEANE & BEANE WINS DISMISSAL OF TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE LAWSUIT

In a lawsuit seeking $1,000,000 in damages against the Greenville Fire District and each of its Commissioners, both in their official capacities and individually, Keane & Beane attorneys Jennifer L. Gray and Amanda L.T. Magana, successfully secured the dismissal of the Complaint as an impermissible SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit against Public Participation) suit under the NYS Civil Rights Law. SLAPP suits are not permitted in New York State because of the chilling effect they can have on public participation in land use applications and other matters of public interest. The Court, by Decision of the Honorable Charles D. Wood, J.S.C., agreed that the tortious interference claim asserted by Formation-Shelbourne Senior Living Services, LLC against the Greenville Fire District, based on the fire district’s opposition to the location of a proposed development within its jurisdiction, is a “classic SLAPP suit.” The Court dismissed the Complaint in its entirety with an award of costs and attorney’s fees to the fire district.
