Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Western District of Tennessee at Memphis.
No. 2:14-cv-02294—Sheryl H. Lipman, District Judge.
Argued: October 22, 2019
Decided and Filed: April 9, 2020
Before: CLAY, THAPAR, and NALBANDIAN, Circuit Judges.
CLAY, Circuit Judge. In this consolidated appeal, Defendants Pilot Corporation and
Pilot Travel Centers LLC (collectively “Pilot” or “Defendant”), appeal from the district court’s
orders (1) denying Defendant’s motion to reconsider the district court’s order compelling
discovery of employment dates and (2) dismissing, without prejudice, Defendant’s motion to
compel arbitration. Plaintiff Arvion Taylor, on behalf of herself and others similarly situated,
initiated this Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. § 201 et seq., lawsuit against
Defendant. As it did in its last appeal in this case, Defendant cites the Federal Arbitration Act
(FAA), 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., in an attempt to establish that this Court has jurisdiction over the
instant appeal. Unfortunately for Pilot, it has once again misread this statute. For the reasons set
forth below, we DISMISS this appeal for want of jurisdiction.
