As many businesses know all too well, juries often render verdicts based upon emotion rather than sound legal reasoning and evidence. Many businesses have attempted to avoid putting the fate of important legal disputes in the hands of jurors by insisting on contractual provisions waiving the right to a jury trial.

A common question among employers when an employee has been terminated is what information regarding the termination may be disclosed to other employees. The recent decision in McGrory v.

In McGrory, an employee brought a defamation claim (among other claims) against his former employer for revealing to other employees the reasoning for his termination.
