SCOTUS Denies Cert in Creditor’s Arbitration Appeal

Posted by NCBRC - October 1, 2018

The Supreme Court today denied certiorari in a case filed by Credit One Bank seeking to enforce an arbitration clause in a consumer credit card agreement. Credit One Bank, N.A. v. Anderson, No. 17-1652, petition denied, (Oct. 1, 2018).

The case originated in the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on the debtor’s motion to reopen his bankruptcy and seek redress for a discharge injunction violation based on Credit One’s post-discharge collection efforts. Faced with Credit One’s motion to compel arbitration, the bankruptcy court found an inherent conflict between arbitration and the goals of the Bankruptcy Code and denied the motion. The district court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed. Anderson v. Credit One Bank, No. 16-2496 (2d Cir. March 7, 2018).
