Circuit court splits have caught the Supreme Court’s attention over the past year, resulting in some stunning outcomes. Among the issues federal courts have addressed are compelling discovery in international arbitration, enforcing arbitration agreements against non-signatories, and re-interpreting the standard for delegation.
