M. Miller Baker was named Litigator of the Week by the Am Law Litigation Daily (May 7) for McDermott's victory in the U.S. Supreme Court in Arthur Andersen v. Carlisle. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling affirmed that litigants not party to an arbitration agreement can invoke federal law to seek and obtain a stay pending arbitration, if state law allows for non signatories to have access to arbitration. The decision reversed an earlier appeals court ruling and remanded the case, brought by the former Arthur Andersen accounting firm, for review. Mr. Baker said, "The court clarified and gave a very clean and crisp test for appellate jurisdiction, eliminating widespread confusion in the courts of appeals."
