Assoc. Prof. Horton writes amicus brief in AT&T case

David HortonAssociate Professor David Horton wrote and filed an amicus brief in the AT&T Mobility LLC v. Vincent and Liza Concepcion case scheduled for oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 9.

Excerpt of the summary:

This is a case about what the unconscionability doctrine is, not what ATTM and its amici want it to be. "Unconscionability has generally been recognized to include an absence of meaningful choice on the part of one of the parties together with contract terms which are unreasonably favorable to the other party." Williams v. Walker-Thomas Furniture Co., 350 F.2d 445, 449 (D.C. Cir. 1965).
