The Tenth Circuit affirmed a Colorado district court’s decision to deny a former Ceragenix Pharmaceutical executive’s motion to compel arbitration of his claims of retaliation.  Genberg v. Porter, No. 13-1140 (10th Cir. May 12, 2014).  The executive alleged he was terminated after his employer discovered he anonymously sent in a letter alleging that Ceragenix broke the law by failing to hold required shareholder meetings. The executive moved to compel arbitration of his claim pursuant to the terms of his employment agreement.  The district court held, and the Tenth Circuit agreed, that the individual defendants, former board members of the now-defunct Ceragenix, were not parties to the employment agreement and thus not bound by its arbitration clause.
