CPR Speaks on Lamps Plus in SCOTUSblog


As reported in SCOTUSblog, on April 25, the US Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Lamps Plus Inc. v. Varela "that the Federal Arbitration Act bars interpretation of an arbitration agreement under state law that would allow class arbitration based on general language commonly used in arbitration agreements."

Linking to coverage of the decision on our blog, CPR Speaks, SCOTUSblog quoted authors Echo Wang and Russ Bleemer in their observation that the decision “demonstrates the court’s profound conservative-liberal split.”
