Other Arbitration-Related Petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court

Several emails have asked what we meant on Wednesday by "other cases" with arbitration issues pending. We were talking about two, in particular:

1. In T-Mobile v. Laster (9th Cir. 2007) 252 Fed.Appx. 777 (2007 U.S. App. LEXIS 25265, 2007 WL 3194117), (S.Ct. No. 07-976), the issue presented is whether, under the FAA, a federal court may refuse to enforce the terms of an agreement to arbitrate based upon a state-law policy that individual arbitration is unconscionable in cases involving small claims by a consumer.

2. In IBEW, Local Union No. 21 v. Illinois Bell (7th Cir. 2007) 491 F.3d 685, the petititioners seek to reverse an opinion upholding an order to compel arbitration of a dispute over new employee performance evaluation guidelines.
