College of Commercial Arbitrators Publishes Robert Bartkus Blog Item
MARC’s Robert E. Bartkus wrote an article for the College of Commercial Arbitrators’ (CCA) blog on two recent precedential Third Circuit cases that clarify standards for finding an arbitrable contract.
Bob wrote that in Aliments Krispy Kernels, Inc. v. Nichols Farms, __ F.3d __, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 4991 (3d Cir. Mar. 21, 2017), the court confirmed the demise of part of a 36-year-old circuit precedent.
And in James v. Global Tel*Link Corp., __ F.3d __, 2017 WL 1160893 (3d Cir. Mar. 29, 2017), the court affirmed an order declining to require arbitration for most plaintiffs in a proposed class action over pricing for inmate telephone services. Bob wrote that the clarity and brevity of the legal reasoning warrant attention.
