Holding: A court should determine whether the Federal Arbitration Act’s Section 1 exclusion for disputes involving the “contracts of employment” of certain transportation workers applies before ordering arbitration; here, truck driver Dominic Oliveira’s independent contractor operating agreement with New Prime Inc. falls within that exception.
Judgment: Affirmed, 8-0, in an opinion by Justice Gorsuch on January 15, 2019. Justice Ginsburg filed a concurring opinion. Justice Kavanaugh took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.

How do you solve a problem like the shadow docket? @steve_vladeck has some thoughts and shared them with @AHoweBlogger in the latest SCOTUStalk.
