US Supreme Court To Review Class Arbitration Waiver Case

The US Supreme Court has granted certiorari to review the Ninth Circuit's decision in Laster v. AT&T Mobility LLC, 584 F.3d 849 (9th Cir. October 27, 2009). In Laster, the Ninth Circuit affirmed a District Court decision that a class arbitration waiver was unconscionable and unenforceable. The Court also held that the Federal Arbitration Act does not preempt California unconscionability law. Our post on Laster is here.

The Supreme Court case is entitled AT&T Mobility, LLC v. Concepcion (No. 09-893). The Court's docket is here. I am adding this case to our watch list.
