Description:

The question in this case was whether an arbitration agreement that does not mention arbitration costs and fees may be held unenforceable on the grounds that it fails to affirmatively protect a party from steep arbitration costs. Unfortunately, the Court held that an agreement's silence with respect to such matters does not render the agreement unenforceable.

Public Citizen filed an amicus brief on the merits on behalf of the respondent. The Supreme Court decided in favor of the petitioner.
