In re JPMorgan Chase and Co., 18-20825

Held that the district court "appears to have erred" in ordering that thousands of current and former employees be notified of a pending Fair Labor Standards Act collective action, because most of them had signed binding arbitration agreements and would be unable to join the action. However, the district court's apparent error in directing the notice did not justify granting the employer's petition for mandamus relief -- but the district court was advised to reconsider its ruling.
