Horr, Novak & Skipp, P.A., recently obtained another favorable ruling in an arbitration in favor of a cruise ship operator in a crewmember personal injury case where the Claimant challenged the choice of law and venue clauses in a collective bargaining agreement. The terms and conditions of the CBA were upheld by the arbitrator. The arbitrator heavily relied upon the Alvarado-Castro v. Pullmantur, 220 So. 3d 531 (Fla. 3d DCA 2017) and Cvoro v. Carnival, 941 F.3d 487 (11th Cir. 2019) decisions, both of which were also handled by the firm.
