Arbitration: What's next for Cable Connection v. DirecTV? (Alternatives)
October 3, 2008
What's next for Cable Connection Inc., v. DirecTV Inc.?
In late August, the California Supreme Court ruled that arbitration contracts in the state may provide for expanded judicial review. The decision came less than six months after the U.S. Supreme Court prohibited expanded judicial review under the Federal Arbitration Act in Hall Street Associates L.L.C. v. Mattel Inc. At the time, the Court declined to hold that others laws might allow expanded review, and left open the slight possibility that judicial review might be justified in other circumstances.
Now that the California Court has allowed it, find out what might happen next. Details are in the October Alternatives, just published online in advance of the hard copy edition.
