It's Arbitration Day at the U.S. Supreme Court. Again (Web)

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the second arbitration case of the term,  14 Penn Plaza LLC, et al. v. Pyett, No. 07-581.  You can find the argument transcript here:

The case, on cert from the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal, presents this question to the Court:

Is an arbitration clause contained in a collective bargaining agreement, freely negotiated by a union and an employer, which clearly and unmistakably waives the union members’ right to a judicial forum for their statutory discrimination claims, enforceable?
The case details were reviewed on this site here.

The Court’s case record is here.  

The Scotusblog’s Wiki for the matter, containing the briefs, is here.

The Court's first arbitration case in the 2008-2009 term, Vaden v. Discover Bank, 07-773, heard on the term's opening day of arguments on Oct. 6, remains undecided.  The Court's Vaden transcript is here; CPR's preview summary is here, and the Scotusblog's Vaden Wiki is here.
