Principal Jed Marcus is quoted in the Law360 article "Transpo Worker Ruling A Rare Blow To Arbitration Pacts" by Linda Chiem.  The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that transportation workers, regardless of whether they're employees or independent contractors, are exempt from the Federal Arbitration Act.

"This is a decision that bucks the recent trend in Supreme Court cases that, much to the chagrin of employee rights advocates, enforced arbitration agreements in a wide variety of circumstances, including, for example, arbitration clauses with class action waivers," said Jed Marcus, chair of Bressler Amery & Ross' labor and employment practice. "What appears to me is that the court is taking a serious look at the language of the FAA and the arbitration agreement itself."

"In short, this court is telling us that it is compelled to follow the FAA and arbitration agreements as they are written, and not as we might wish them to be," he added.
