Argument preview: Does the Federal Arbitration Act preempt state precedent?
On Tuesday, in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, the Court will hear arguments in a class-action lawsuit to determine whether the Federal Arbitration Act preempts a state court decision holding that a class action ban within an arbitration clause is unenforceable. Jayne Zanglein, a professor at Western Carolina University, and Douglas Guffey, a Business Administration and Law major at the same university, preview the case for the American Bar Association’s PREVIEW of U.S. Supreme Court Cases; the ABA has generously agreed to share some of its previews – which are authored by practitioners and scholars in the field – with SCOTUSblog. You can read the preview here; PREVIEW’s website is here.
