Tuesday round-up

It’s déjà vu day at the Supreme Court, with the justices set to hear oral arguments in a pair of cases that seem — at least at first glance — to reprise issues the court has previously considered in recent terms. In the first case, Facebook v. Duguid, the court will revisit the federal anti-robocalling law known as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Earlier this year, the court struck down one provision of that law as violating the First Amendment. Now, the court will tackle a thorny statutory-interpretation question that will determine how broadly the law can sweep — and some First Amendment issues are again lingering in the background of the case. Our preview is here.

In the second case to be argued on Tuesday, Henry Schein Inc. v. Archer and White Sales Inc., the court will consider the latest iteration in a meta-fight between two dental-supply companies over whether their dispute should be litigated in court or resolved in arbitration. In 2019, the court decided round 1 in favor of Henry Schein Inc., which wants arbitration. Archer and White Sales, which wants to litigate in federal court, faces somewhat long odds that round 2 will end differently. Our preview is here.
