Today, Weds., Mar. 28, 2012, in Promega. v. Life Tech., No. 2011-1263, the Federal Circuit (Rader, Newman (dissenting) and Dyk) affirmed the district court’s order compelling arbitration of infringement claims under the Federal Arbitration Act based on an arbitration agreement that had been assigned among related entities.  This decision provides insight into the Federal Circuit’s view of the Federal Arbitration Act that appears to favor enforcing agreements to arbitrate.
