Mayers v. Volt Management: California Supreme Court Grants Review in Arbitration Case

No rest for the weary. I just blogged this case, and now the Supreme Court has granted review. In Mayers v. Volt Management (discussed here), the Supreme Court has granted review and deferred briefing pending its decision in  Sanchez  v. Valencia Holding Co. LLC, S199119, which includes the following issue:
Does the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. ? 2), as interpreted in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion (2011) 563 U. S. __, 131 S.Ct. 1740, preempt state law rules invalidating mandatory arbitration provisions in a consumer contract as procedurally and substantively unconscionable? 
The Court's web page for Mayers is here.  The page for Sanchez is here.
