Is MPS Headed to the U.S. Supreme Court?

MPS Attorney Jay McKirahan is awaiting word this fall to see whether the justices will be adding his case to their docket in the new term of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Challenging a Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision, an MPS client has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to determine that a statute permitting Congress to reopen a federal bankruptcy court final order and permit a private arbiter to reverse that order is unconstitutional. The case began in 2010, with McKirahan representing a car dealership in a complaint filed by Chrysler against multiple dealerships, in which Chrysler asked the court to declare the rights and responsibilities of both itself and dealers following the automaker’s bankruptcy.

Dealing with matters before the highest court in the nation is not new ground for McKirahan. He has previously presented to the Supreme Court in other cases, most recently winning an administrative appeal for a State of Ohio employee in an employment termination case.

This new appeal will be considered by the Supreme Court after it returns this month from its summer recess. Stay tuned for further developments in this hallmark case for MPS!
