Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-1318 Ky. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2018

Issue: Whether Section 2 of the Federal Arbitration Act pre-empts the Kentucky Supreme Court’s newly-announced rule holding that a power of attorney authorizing the holder to enter into “contracts of every nature in relation to both real and personal property” does not encompass arbitration agreements because those agreements instead relate to rights to trial by jury and access to court.
