Court dismisses school psychologist's argument that arbitrator should have held hearing

In Warren v. Flint Community Schools, the plaintiff was dismissed after she could not return to work within two years of a motor vehicle accident.  She filed a grievance, which was denied by a labor contract arbitrator.  Warren argued that the arbitrator was not in compliance with the parties' contract when he refused to hold a hearing to consider evidence submitted by Warren to document her ability to work.  The Court rejected the woman's appeal, holding that the labor contract and statute did not require that a hearing be held by the arbitrator, or that the arbitrator "follow any particular procedure."
