International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution Newsletter Features Philip J. Loree Jr. Cover Story on Stolt-Nielsen, S.A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l Corp.

June 6th, 2010 Arbitration Practice and Procedure, Authority of Arbitrators, Awards, Class Action Arbitration, Class Action Waivers, Consolidation of Arbitration Proceedings, Grounds for Vacatur, United States Supreme Court Comments Off on International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution Newsletter Features Philip J. Loree Jr. Cover Story on Stolt-Nielsen, S.A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l Corp. By Philip J. Loree Jr.

The June 2010 issue of Alternatives to the High Cost of Litigation, the excellent newsletter of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (”CPR”), featured as its cover story an article I wrote on the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Stolt-Nielsen, S.A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l CorpThe article is entitled “Stolt-Nielsen Delivers a New FAA Rule – And then Federalizes the Law of Contracts,” 28 Alternatives 124 (June 2010).   

In it I argue that the Stolt-Nielsen decision is both inexplicably broad and inexplicably narrow in scope, and may provide fodder for those who assert that Congress should enact the Fairness in Arbitration Act of 2009.  I also deconstruct the reasoning of the decision and explore some of its other practical and legal implications.   

Alternatives to the High Cost of Litigation is a subscription-only publication. Subscription information is available at this page, as well as at the publisher’s, John Wiley & Sons’s,  website here.

I would like once again to take this opportunity to thank CPR, and Russ Bleemer, Editor of Alternatives, for their kind assistance and support in featuring my article.   As I have said before, Russ is a keen,  intelligent and professional editor with whom it is a pleasure to work.
