Bell Nunnally Team Wins Arbitration Award for a Publicly-Traded Independent Energy Company

27 Jul 2022 Latam

Partners Mark A. Shoffner and Alana A. Ackels with Associate Mason G. Jones successfully defended and confirmed an arbitration award on behalf of a publicly-traded, independent energy company based in Dallas.

After a three-day hearing, the arbitrator entered a take-nothing judgment in favor of our client and found against a former employee who alleged claims of pregnancy discrimination and retaliation under Title VII and a separate claim under the Equal Pay Act.

The former employee subsequently sought to vacate the final award in court. After extensive briefing, U.S. District Judge Karen Gren Scholer denied the motion and affirmed the company’s victory.
