Judge Orders Ex-Partner's Discrimination Suit Be Decided In Confidential Arbitration

Irell & Manella's former entertainment partner brought employment discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit against the firm. A California Superior Court judge has sided with the firm and ordered that the lawsuit be decided in a confidential arbitration proceeding rather than a public courtroom. Hogue ordered that all the claims of Youngblood's complaints should fall within the scope of Irell & Manella's partnership agreement, signed by Youngblood and which dictates that such disputes be settled in negotiation. Youngblood asserted in the complaint that she left Irell because of constructive termination. Irell claimed in its initial response to the suit that Youngblood left not because of abusive behavior of the the firm, but to become a movie producer. Paul Hastings partner Nancy Abell is representing Irell and Pamela McKibbin Teren of the Teren Law Group is advising Youngblood in the matter.
