My working title for this blog was "collective action grab bag," concerning the recent Sixth Circuit case in Killion v. KeHE Distributors, LLC, Case
Do you remember the movie “Spring Break ’83”?
A great deal of intellectual energy has been spent on the issue of whether various employment arbitration agreements are enforceable, but the debate pretty much comes down to two camps.
Another court has weighed in in favor of enforcing an arbitration agreement containing a class action waiver in the wake of the United States Supreme Court’s decision in AT&T Mobility, LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740, 1746 (2011).
It has been less than a year since the United States Supreme Court's decision in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, in which it held that arbitration agreements requiring the resolution of putative class action claims on an individual basis were enforceable.
The battle between California courts and the U.S. Supreme Court over arbitration agreements wages on.
The Supreme Court has now held that the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. section 2, preempts state laws that would condition arbitration agreements on the availability of class action arbitration procedures.
