In December 2008, Partner John B. Golper and Senior Counsel John J. Manier won a motion to compel arbitration on behalf of Anheuser-Busch, Inc. in Blackwell v. Anheuser-Busch, Inc. The plaintiff claimed he was denied reasonable accommodation and terminated because of his disability and age. The Los Angeles County Superior Court found that the plaintiff must arbitrate all of his claims under Anheuser-Busch’s Dispute Resolution Program (DRP). It rejected the plaintiff’s claim that he never read a copy of the DRP and that he might not have received a copy because his ex-wife allegedly hid mail from him. The court stayed the plaintiff’s lawsuit pending the completion of arbitration proceedings.
