The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Northwest v. Ginsberg yesterday. At issue is whether the Airline Deregulation Act preempts a passenger's state law claim that the airline violated the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. The full transcript of the oral arguments is available here. SCOTUSblog's case file is an excellent source for background reading on the case. Tomorrow we will post our thoughts and reactions to the oral arguments, and perhaps offer a prediction about the eventual ruling.
