Rhonda Wasserman and Colleagues File U.S. Supreme Court Amicus Brief


Together with a small group of other Civil Procedure professors, Professor Rhonda Wasserman submitted an amicus curiae brief to the United States Supreme Court in the case of American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, No. 12-133 (2013).  The brief argues that arbitration agreements should not be enforced against claimants who, as a practical matter, cannot enforce their statutory rights in the arbitral forum.  The brief further maintains that the pro-arbitration policy underlying the Federal Arbitration Act must be balanced with the First Amendment right of access to justice.
