Federal Arbitration Act Preemption
Ohio State law professor Sarah Rudolph Cole is an experienced, careful, and well-balanced scholar of arbitration law. Her recent article discusses one of the most important topics in arbitration law, FAA preemption of state law. She points out that the Supreme Court’s Stolt-Nielsen (2010) and Concepcion (2011) decisions permit preemption of state law in areas the FAA does not address.
