US Supreme Court Issues Arbitration Decision

On January 15, 2010, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Rent-A-Center, West, Inc. v. Jackson (U.S. June 21, 2010) --- S.Ct. ---, 2010 WL 2471058. My original post, which gives the background, is here.

The Supreme Court issued its decision on June 21, holding that a provision of an employment agreement that delegated to an arbitrator exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the agreement's enforceability was a valid delegation under the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA") and that the district court did not abuse its discretion in granting the employer's petition to compel arbitration.

The Complex Litigator has an interesting take on the case here.
