Sometimes, the best defense is a good offense. In a recent arbitration in New York City, Jeff James convinced the Arbitrator (a retired U.S. District Court Judge) to enter judgment in our client’s favor at the close of the plaintiff’s case. The plaintiff claimed entitlement to unpaid bonuses, commissions, and future payments under an employment agreement that required all disputes to be resolved through arbitration. Jeff argued that the plaintiff’s evidence failed to establish that she was entitled to one cent, much less the mountain of money she was seeking. The Arbitrator agreed, and spared our client from having to call a single witness.
