From the article:

“Courts have been upholding arbitration agreements left, right and center,” said David I. Brody, vice president of the Massachusetts Employment Lawyers Association. “Here, you have a unanimous [Supreme Court] going the other way, which is ever so rare.”

Brody expects Sundance to become a popular weapon in the arsenal of plaintiffs’ attorneys.

“To the extent that someone is trying to defeat an arbitration clause, this case is heavy ammunition,” Brody said.
