On September 19, 2012, the California Supreme Court granted the plaintiff’s petition for review of the Second District Court of Appeal’s decision in Iskanian v. CLE Transportation Los Angeles, LLC, 206 Cal.App.4th 949 (2012). Depending on the Supreme Court’s ultimate decision, Iskanian could represent a thawing of the California courts’ hostility to the U.S. Supreme Court’s pro-arbitration decision in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, as Evan M.Tager and Kevin S. Ranlett wrote in a WLF Legal Opinion Letter last year—or an unfortunate doubling-down on that hostility.
