MaudlinMutantMollusk: I have a feeling the other shoe is going to fall soon


5/9's of SCOTUS: Fark!  I thought that was the Abortion Opinion, NOT the Arbitration Opinion I signed.

No, not really.

The case instant the restaurant operator began to litigate the case, and even had settlement discussions.  After eight months they decided to try to force arbitration. 

The SCOTUS said they waited too long and should have done that from the outset, so they don't get to force arbitration after 8 months.

So now companies will just force you into arbitration on the day your file your lawsuit. 

While important to the plaintiff in this case, it isn't the earth shattering beat down of the FAA that Slate seems to think it is.

You have to carry that goalpost a long way to get from "unainmous win," to, "earthshaking beatdown of corporate America."
