Today, in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion (April 27, 2011), the Supreme Court held, 5-to-4, that California's Discover Bank rule is preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act. What a thing to wake up to after sleeping extra to try and recover faster from being sick. I'll write more about the deaths of class arbitration and state's rights later. So much for federalism. This is truly the era of the Central Planning Bureau.
