On Tuesday, October 19, 2010, ACS hosted a briefing on AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, which will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in November. Some commentators believe that this case, which has garnered relatively little attention, has potentially wide-ranging implications for consumer, civil rights, and other class actions.
