Buffalo Rock Secures Two Victories in Alabama Supreme Court
May 29, 2014
Buffalo Rock Company secured two recent victories in the Alabama Supreme Court. Both appeals stem from employment-based claims between Stewart R. Dudley and Buffalo Rock that were filed in the Circuit Court of Jefferson County.
In the first appeal, the Alabama Supreme Court affirmed the circuit court’s grant of Buffalo Rock’s motion to compel arbitration of Dudley's claims before the American Arbitration Association. The second appeal was from an order of the Shelby County Circuit Court refusing Dudley’s efforts to have the proceedings before the American Arbitration enjoined.
Together, the Alabama Supreme Court’s rulings gave Buffalo Rock precisely what it asked for: arbitration of Dudley’s claims pursuant to his employment agreement.
Lightfoot attorneys Sam Franklin, Wynn Shuford, Nikaa Jordan and James Gibson represented Buffalo Rock in both appeals.
