Cup v. Ampco Pittsburgh Corp. — civil — reversal — Hardiman
In a dispute between a union and an employer over retiree benefits, the district court granted the union’s request for arbitration, but today the Third Circuit reversed on the ground that the collective bargaining agreement did not cover retirees. The court also held that a district court order compelling arbitiration, dismissing the substantive claims without prejudice, and administratively closing the case is an appealable final order.
Joining Hardiman were Smith and Restrepo. Arguing counsel were Nathan Kilbert of the United Steelworkers for the union and Jeremy Blumenfeld of Morgan Lewis for the employer.
