SCOTUS Oral Argument in Class Action Arbitration Case: AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion

We covered earlier the Supreme Court’s grant of certiorari in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion (09-893), which presents the issue:

Whether the Federal Arbitration Act preempts States from conditioning the  enforcement of an arbitration agreement on the availability of particular procedures—here, class-wide arbitration—when those procedures are not necessary to ensure that the parties to the arbitration agreement are able to vindicate their claims.

The transcript from today’s oral argument is available here. SCOTUSblog’s casefile has links to the briefs and the Ninth Circuit’s opinion.
