A federal judge Monday accused food delivery service DoorDash of trying to “squirm” out of its obligation to arbitrate labor disputes with more than 2,000 workers [represented by Keller Lenkner] after they were rdered to pay more than $11 million in arbitration fees.
“Your law firm and all your firms have tried for 20 years to keep plaintiffs out of court, and you’ve gotten a lot of success in the courts,” U.S. District Judge William Alsup said. “Then someone says, ‘OK. We’ll take you to arbitration,’ and suddenly it’s not in your interest anymore. Now you’re wiggling away, trying to find a way to squirm out of your agreement.”
