Tom Smith and Laura Robb won an arbitration hearing for a University of Missouri – Columbia fraternity alleged to have discriminated against the claimant in its housing and membership practices. After being expelled from fraternity housing, the claimant made a demand for arbitration pursuant to his housing contract. Claimant alleged violations of federal and state civil rights and housing laws in addition to asserting state law claims for breach of contract and defamation. The matter proceeded through arbitration pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties conducted limited discovery in accordance with the arbitration rules. Claimant sought recovery for compensatory and punitive damages and over $50,000 in attorneys’ fees. Following a full day of testimony before the arbitrator and extensive post-arbitration briefing, the arbitrator denied all of claimant’s allegations and found entirely in favor of Fox Smith’s client.
