I wanted to take a moment to share another interesting article from our litigation colleague, Brodie Butland. In late November, I shared Brodie’s article “The Case Influencing the Future of Arbitration,” which discusses BG Group PLC v. Republic of Argentina — an international arbitration case that has the potential to affect the practice of arbitration, international investment and the standing of the United States as a premier international forum for arbitration.

On Dec. 2, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for the case. Though the decision will not be rendered until later this year, the oral argument revealed much about the justices’ views of the case. In a follow-up to his previous article, Brodie discusses what he believes to be the key takeaways from the oral argument.
