On June 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Rent-A-Center, West v. Jackson. The question presented was:
Is the district court required in all cases to determine claims that an arbitration agreement subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (”FAA”) is unconscionable, even when the parties to the contract have clearly and unmistakably assigned this “gateway” issue to the arbitrator for decision?
