Oral Argument in AT&T Mobility, LLC v. Vincent Concepcion

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments yesterday in AT&T Mobility, LLC v. Vincent Concepcion, a case that will determine whether states can require businesses to include certain procedures (like class-wide arbitration) in their arbitration agreements.  The "plain English" translation by SCOTUSblog is: "Does the Federal Arbitration Act prohibit states from mandating that class arbitration be available as part of every arbitration agreement?"

Adam Liptak's New York Times story on the case is available here; a transcript of the oral argument is available here; and the SCOTUSblog summary is available here
