AAI Urges Supreme Court to Uphold Unconscionability of Class Waiver (AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, No. 09-893)

AAI filed an amicus brief today urging the Supreme Court to uphold the Ninth Circuit’s ruling that AT&T’s ban on class actions or class arbitrations by consumers was unconscionable under California law, and that the Federal Arbitration Act did not preempt California law applicable to class action waivers.  In the brief, AAI stressed the importance of class actions and class arbitrations to the enforcement of antitrust and other consumer protection laws.

The brief was written by AAI Director of Legal Advocacy Richard Brunell.
