The U.S. Supreme Court seems to have sidestepped questions about how the arbitrator in a health insurance provider network contract case, Oxford Health Plans L.L.C. vs. Florida (Case Number 12-135), handled the arbitration.

The court has issued a unanimous ruling supporting an arbitration ruling that came down in favor of the lead plaintiff in the case, Dr. John Sutter. An arbitrator in the case let Sutter represent a class of about 20,000 New Jersey network providers in a class arbitration proceeding.
