Paul beat me to the punch, but I could not agree more with him that the Court’s decision in Compucredit v. Greenwood is unsurprising. The true mystery of the case is that the Court took it in the first place. Until Congress decides to make it clear that a particular statutory claim cannot be arbitrated, the Court will continue to find that statements like “right to sue” and “cause of action” cannot be construed to avoid application of the FAA.
