United States Supreme Court
DIRECTV, Inc. v. Imburgia, 14-462
In a case involving a service agreement that included a binding arbitration provision with a class-arbitration waiver, the California Court of Appeal's decision upholding the trial court's denial of DIRECTTV's request to order the matter to arbitration, on grounds that California law would render class-arbitration waivers unenforceable, is reversed where the California Court of Appeal's interpretation is pre-empted by the Federal Arbitration Act, and that court must enforce the arbitration agreement.
