Prime Healthcare Services v. United Nurses and Allied Professionals, 16-1161

In a dispute between employees and their successor employer, both of whom agreed to arbitrate, the district court's refusal to compel arbitration because it found that ERISA preempted arbitration of this dispute, which presented an issue of arbitrability properly decided by a judge, is reversed where the issue of ERISA preemption in this case is not an issue of arbitrability, but rather one that is squarely for the arbitrator to decide.
