W&M attorneys to argue case before the Supreme Court
1 First St NE
Washington, DC 20543
Wilkes & McHugh attorney Rob Salyer will present arguments to the Supreme Court of the United States in the case, Kindred Nursing Centers v. Clark, which revolves around three consolidated wrongful death cases where a person with power of attorney signed arbitration agreements. The Supreme Court of Kentucky determined the agreements were not binding because the people with power of attorney were not specifically granted permission to waive the residents' right to a trial. However, the American Health Care Association called the Kentucky court's ruling "erroneous" and requested that the Supreme Court review the case.
Wilkes & McHugh attorney Stephen Trzcinski is assisting with the case. The audio transcripts of the arguments will be made available here.
