WASHINGTON | Kavanaugh 1st opinion is unanimous, resolves narrow question
WASHINGTON—January 08, 2019— Justice Brett Kavanaugh has written his first majority opinion for the Supreme Court, a unanimous decision in an arbitration case.
Kavanaugh’s eight-page opinion Tuesday resolves a narrow question in a dispute between two businesses in a soured relationship involving dental equipment.
The case involved whether the dispute would head to arbitration or a lawsuit, and who would decide which path.
The court is not answering those questions, but it is rejecting a lower-court ruling in favor of a lawsuit.
