Holding: Parties may sometimes settle disputes through arbitration, rather than litigation. When the dispute involves numerous similarly-situated individuals, a few individuals may conduct the arbitration on behalf of the larger groups (similar to a class action lawsuit). Here, the Court ruled that that class action arbitration is permitted only if all the parties specifically agree to it.
