Petition for certiorari denied on November 16, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
20-128 2nd Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2020

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit erred in recognizing a cause of action for a party seeking to avoid arbitration and in concluding that courts have remedial power — untethered to any federal statute and unconstrained by the Supreme Court’s precedents governing the grant of injunctive relief — to issue injunctions against arbitration.
