Five Star Senior Living Inc. v. Mandviwala

U.S. Supreme Court

Question(s) Presented

2. Whether a California rule that prohibits the enforcement of arbitration agreements with respect to representative employment claims under PAGA is preempted by the FAA because the rule eviscerates bilateral arbitration agreements and thereby thwarts the objectives of the FAA.
