Oral Argument Today in Stolt-Nielsen, S.A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l Corp.

December 9th, 2009 Uncategorized 2 Comments » By Philip J. Loree Jr.

Today the United States Supreme Court is hearing argument in the one Federal Arbitration Act case it has agreed to hear this Term:  Stolt-Nielsen, S.A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l Corp., 548 F.3d 85 (2d Cir. 2009), petition for cert. granted June 15, 2009 (No. 08-1198).  We have written extensively on Stolt-Nielsen, which concerns whether class arbitration may be imposed on parties whose contracts are silent on that point.  (Posts available here,  here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.) Once the oral argument transcript is available, and we have time to digest it, we shall report back to readers.

Stay tuned….
