President-elect Trump May Undo Anti-Arbitration Developments

January 06, 2017

In a Lexology post, Stinson Leonard Street attorney Liz Kramer analyzes the “big arbitration developments” of 2016, including the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the 7th Circuit’s favorable ruling for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)’s position on arbitration, and the CFPB proposed rule-making aimed at eliminating pre-dispute arbitration clauses.

She goes on to predict that “the Trump Administration will act to roll back some or all of these regulations… [and] that SCOTUS will again become a 5-4 majority in favor of strict enforcement of arbitration clauses.”
