Examines the Fifth Circuit writing on a wide range of important business topics during the survey period, including: fundamental issues of antitrust law, the recurring problem of agreements defined by multiple-often inconsistent documents in arbitration law, and the BP settlement in the Deepwater Horizon litigation. Several opinions continued to define key points in litigation involving mortgage servicers. Reviewed the court's analysis on the kinds of allegations that can allow removal of state law claims to federal court and gave several reminders that credibility issues can give rise to fact issues that defeat summary judgment.
