AT&T Mobility LLC's recent appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is the latest case that has questioned the scope of the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). There has been controversy over whether arbitration agreements should be treated the same as other types of contracts.

Jeffrey Polsky feels that the FAA clearly stipulates arbitration agreements should be held on equal footing with other contracts. He does not agree with special rules that make it harder to enforce or enter into an arbitration agreement.
