Fifth Circuit declines to compel arbitration in rape case

Allison Torres Burtka

In a high-profile case involving the defense contractor Halliburton Co., the Fifth Circuit held that an arbitration clause in the company’s employment contract did not apply to certain claims brought by Jamie Leigh Jones, an employee who was raped and beaten by coworkers. The decision "may well have a significant effect on other victims of sexual assault," said John Vail of the Center for Constitutional Litigation, who represented Jones on appeal.
