Taking a contrary approach to the majority decision in Abaclat and others v. Argentine Republic (formerly known as Giovanna a Beccara and Others v. Argentine Republic), ICSID Case No. AR/07/5, the United States Supreme Court held that imposing class arbitration on parties whose arbitration clauses are silent on that issue is inconsistent with the United States Federal Arbitration Act.
