Abstract

In Shady Grove Orthopedic Associates, P.A. v. Allstate Insurance Company, Justices Scalia and Stevens offered alternative interpretations of §2072(b) of the Rules Enabling Act (“REA”). The focus of this essay is on that disagreement. The author argues that both the text of the REA and judicial precedent support the Stevens interpretation.
