PUBLISHED OPINION(s)

    Fitz v. NCR Corp.  (2004) 118 Cal. App. 4th 702 

    Plaintiff (Fitz) employee brought a wrongful termination complaint against defendant employer (NCR). The employer brought a motion to compel arbitration under its dispute resolution policy. The Superior Court of San Diego County (California) denied the motion to compel arbitration, finding that the employer's policy was procedurally and substantively unconscionable. The employer appealed. The Opinion of Judge M. Orfield in the North County Division of Vista, Superior Court of California was Affirmed by the Court of Appeals and the employee was successful in continuing the lawsuit in Court and not in Arbitration. see employment law
