Peter Rosenow Files a Class Action Complaint Against Alltel Corp. and Alltel Communications Inc
Oct 31 14
Peter Rosenow filed a class action complaint against Alltel Corp. and Alltel Communications Inc. (collectively, Alltel), alleging Alltel imposed an early termination fee on Rosenow and other cellular phone customers in violation of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Alltel moved to compel arbitration. The trial court denied the motion, holding that the arbitration agreement lacked mutuality. Under Arkansas law, mutuality requires that the terms of an agreement impose liability upon both parties. The arbitration agreement at issue provided in part that if Alltel did not enforce any right or remedy available under the agreement, that failure was not a waiver. The supreme court agreed with the trial court's determination that the arbitration agreement imposed no real liability upon Alltel. Alltel and customers were bound by the arbitration agreement but Alltel clearly reserved their right to pursue remedies other than arbitration without consequence. The reservation was limited solely to Alltel. Rosenow and other customers had to submit any disputes to arbitration. In determining whether parties agreed to arbitrate a certain matter, courts should apply ordinary state law principles that govern the formation of contracts. The supreme court noted that if it did not consider mutuality, the court would be impermissibly placing arbitration provisions on unequal footing with other contract provisions. The supreme court concluded that the arbitration agreement treated Alltel and customers differently. The disparate treatment resulted in a lack of mutuality. Accordingly, Rosenow was not obligated to arbitrate his dispute.
