SCOTUS Cert Grant of Interest: Stok & Associates v. Citibank
The Supreme Court granted certiorari this week in Stok & Associates v. Citibank (No. 10-514), which presents the question:
Under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), should a party be required to demonstrate prejudice after the opposing party waived its contractual right to arbitrate by participating in litigation, in order for such waiver to be binding and irrevocable?
