American Express v. Italian Colors: SCOTUS Schedules Oral Argument In Class Action Waiver Case

On Wednesday, February 27, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant (discussed here), which raises the following issue:
Whether the Federal Arbitration Act permits courts, invoking the “federal substantive law of arbitrability,” to invalidate arbitration agreements on the ground that they do not permit class arbitration of a federal-law claim.
The Court's docket is here. The Second Circuit opinion is here, and SCOTUSblog has a web page for the case here. I have added the case to our Watch List and we will do a webinar on it when the Court issues its decision next year.
