Ignazio v. Clear Channel Communications

Client: Miscellaneous
Date: 2007
Case citation: Ignazio v. Clear Channel Communications, 113 Ohio St.3d 276, 865 N.E.2d 18 (Ohio 2007)

The court of appeals had held that Clear Channel’s employment arbitration agreement was unenforceable because of an objectionable provision. We successfully convinced the Ohio Supreme Court to accept this appeal to establish statewide standards for the severance of unenforceable contractual provisions, and then convinced the Supreme Court to reverse the court of appeals. Adopting our proposed test for severability, the Supreme Court held that the unlawful provision of the arbitration agreement was severable and the remainder of the agreement enforceable.
