Franchisees Win Major Victory on Appeal against 7-Eleven

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit vacated both of the previous district court decisions in favor of 7-Eleven franchisees in a consolidated appeal on February 27, sending the entire matter back to the district court. Eric H. Karp, general counsel for the National Coalition of 7-Eleven Associations made the announcement, saying that the ruling states that two important errors of law were made by the district court.
