Professor Irme Szalai Files Amicus Brief in DirecTV Supreme Court Case

Associate Professor Irme Szalai, working together with several of his students, drafted and filed an amicus brief supporting a group of consumers in the Supreme Court case against DirecTV involving unfair and misleading business practices.  DirecTV, Inc. v. Amy Imburgia, et al. (14-462) involves the arbitration clause in connection with a class action.  Professor Szalai’s brief analyzed federal preemption of state arbitration laws and argues that consumers should not be bound by DirecTV’s arbitration clause.  More than 20 other scholars from law schools around the country joined the brief.
