On November 7th, 2007, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Hall Street Associates v. Mattel case. The Court was asked to consider whether or not a federal court can enforce an arbitration agreement that provides for more expansive judicial review of an arbitration award than the narrow standard of review provided for in the Federal Arbitration Act. In this episode of SCOTUScast, Mark Behrens, a partner at the DC based law firm, Shook Hardy & Bacon, offers his own analysis of the case.
