Reducing the Presumption of Arbitrability

By Jennifer L Peresie


Morrison v. Circuit City Stores, Inc., 317 F.3d 646 (6th Cir. 2003) (en banc). Bradford v. Rockwell Semiconductor Systems, Inc., 238 F.3d 549 (4th Cir. 2001). The United States Supreme Court has expressed a \u22liberal federal policy favoring arbitration.\u22 However, under Gilmer v. Interstate/Johnson Lane Corp., arbitration agreements are only enforceable if \u22the prospective litigant effectively may vindicate [his or her] statutory cause of action in the arbitral forum.\u22 In Green Tree Financial Corp.-Alabama v. Randolph, the Supreme Court, applying Gilmer, held that plaintiffs could avoid arbitration by showing the \u22likelihood\u22 of incurring prohibitive costs
