Forby v. One Technologies presented the unusual situation of an arbitration waiver by the defendant, followed by an arbitration waiver the plaintiff as to a newly asserted claim: “We again address a class action claiming that One Technologies, L.P. (“One Tech”), duped consumers into signing up for ‘free’ credit reports that were not really free. The last time around, we ruled One Tech waived its right to arbitrate the plaintiffs’ state-law claims. Forby v. One Technologies., 909 F.3d 780 (5th Cir. 2018) [hereinafter Forby I]. Now, we consider whether One Tech also waived its right to arbitrate federal claims added after remand. Adhering to our precedent that waivers of arbitral rights are evaluated on a claim-by-claim basis, see Subway Equip. Leasing Corp. v. Forte, 169 F.3d 324, 328 (5th Cir. 1999), we hold that One Tech did not waive its right to arbitrate the new federal claims.” No. 20-10088 (Sept. 14, 2021) (citing, inter alia, Collado v. J&G Transp., Inc., 820 F.3d 1256 (11th Cir. 2016)).
