Degidio v. Crazy Horse Saloon and Restaurant Inc.

Affirming the district court denial of the Crazy Horse gentleman's club's motion to compel arbitration in a putative collective and class action case brought against them by a former exotic dancer complaining of labor violations where the club included clauses compelling arbitration and waiving the right to participate in class actions into agreements with their dancers during the course of litigation because the court found a unilateral, unsupervised, and misleading pattern of communication with absent class members.

Bustos v. Global P.E.T., Inc.

Affirming a trial court ruling denying attorney fees in the case of a disability discrimination claim where a disability was found to be a substantial motivating reason in the decision of an employer to terminate an employee because the defense defeated all of the claims and although attorney fees could be provided in such a circumstance there was no error in the trial court's decision.
