Another Supreme Court oral argument, another colorful hypothetical courtesy of Justice Stephen Breyer. During arguments Monday in a closely watched arbitration case, Breyer posited a scenario in which a party to a contract, victimized by Mafioso “Joe Bananas,” signs the agreement “under the influence of alcohol and lies.”

The case, Rent-A-Center, West v. Jackson, asks whether claims that an arbitration agreement is unconscionable should be decided by a court or by an arbitrator. Click here for a complete report on the arguments from The National Law Journal.
