ContractsProf Blog Admits to Arbitration Exhaustion

We have been preoccupied with Rant-A-Center v. Jackson, but the Supreme Court's interest in arbitration issues is not limited to that case.  Today the court decided Stolt-Nielsen v. Animalfeeds Int'l Inc. in which the issue was whether an arbitrator can permit class-action arbitration when the arbitration agreement is silent as to the availability of that mechanism.  The court said no in a 5-3 decision that split along predictable lines, with Justice Sotomayor not participating.  If you want details you should look elsewhere.  We recommend the following blawgs:
