Supreme Court to Decide Whether Cases Must Be Stayed Pending Arbitration
The U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a case that will determine whether federal district courts must stay a lawsuit pending arbitration, or if they have the option to dismiss the case when all claims are subject to arbitration.
“This is welcome news to a lot of employers that the Supreme Court is going to resolve the circuit split,” said Marissa Mastroianni, an attorney with Cole Schotz in Hackensack, N.J. “It will make it easier for the multi-jurisdictional employers to understand what the lay of the land is.”
The ruling could impact how much time and money employers will have to spend on enforcing their arbitration agreements.
