U.S. Supreme Court Rules on KPMG LLP v. Cocchi

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion on KPMG, LLP v. Cocchi et al., 565 U. S. ____ (2011). Background and holding are as follows:

In this case the Fourth District Court of Appeal of the State of Florida upheld a trial court’s refusal to compel arbitration of respondents’ claims after determining that two of the four claims in a complaint were nonarbitrable.Though the matter is not altogether free from doubt, a fair reading of the opinion indicates a likelihood that the Court of Appeal failed to determine whether the other two claims in the complaint were arbitrable. For this reason, the judgment of the Court of Appeal is vacated, and the case remanded for further proceedings.

Docket No. 10-1521 is here. The opinion is here. We will post more about the opinion soon. Stay tuned.
