LexisNexisOverview: Former employee's claim that an arbitration
agreement was unconscionable did not specifically challenge a provision that
delegated to the arbitrator the authority to decide whether the agreement was
enforceable; the delegation provision therefore was treated as valid under 9
U.S.C.S. § 2, and the agreement's validity was left for the arbitrator.
Counsel: Robert F. Friedman
argued the cause for petitioner.
E. Silverberg argued the cause for respondent.
Judges: SCALIA, J.,
delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS, C. J., and KENNEDY,
THOMAS, and ALITO, JJ., joined. STEVENS, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in
which GINSBURG, BREYER, and SOTOMAYOR, JJ., joined.
