Description: Rent-a-Center West v. Antonio Jackson (No. 09-497) involved a statutory discrimination claim by an employee against his employer. Because the question presented concerns "all cases," the outcome in Rent-a-Center could affect far more than just employment cases in which the doctrine of unconscionability is asserted to challenge the enforceability of the arbitration agreement. The district court ruled in favor of Rent-a-Center, holding that the issues of unconscionability and enforcement of the arbitration clause were for the arbitrator to decide. However, in a split decision, a majority of the 9th Circuit reversed. Rent-a-Center petitioned the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari.
