US: Supreme court won’t hear dispute over Chrysler dealerships

High court won’t hear dispute over Chrysler dealerships, reports the Detroit News, although by "high" it seems to mean "Supreme". The would-be appeal arose from arbitrations which took place under state motor vehicle dealership laws, following the termination of a load of Chrysler dealers when the manufacturer went into bankruptcy a few years ago. In the case in question, a dealer took action to prevent an ex-dealer which had prevailed in arbitration being allowed to re-open.

The Supremes had previously declined to hear Fiat Chrysler's appeal against a ruling reinstating four former dealers. Both cases involve the important question (in the US system) of whether Federal law pre-empts state laws. Bankruptcy law is Federal while dealership laws are state laws.
