Following is an excerpt:

In an employment discrimination decision significant to employers seeking to avoid class actions in court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has ruled that an arbitration clause in an employment contract precluded one of the three plaintiffs in a gender discrimination class action from proceeding in federal court and required her to arbitrate her claim privately.
