On December 18, 2023, WLF asked the Supreme Court to affirm a Second Circuit decision that properly reads Section 1 of the Federal Arbitration Act, known as the “transportation worker exemption,” in line with its text and historical context. Although some judge-made tests purport to expand the exemption beyond transportation-industry workers who carry goods or passengers across borders, WLF argues that these contrived standards defy statutory text and context, produce inconsistent results, and serve no end set forth by Congress.
