Petition for Review of FAAAA Preemption’s Safety Exception Filed in U.S. Supreme Court

​A petition has been filed in the US Supreme Court seeking review of the appellate decision in Miller v. C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., 976 F.3d 1016, 1020, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 30751, *1, in which the Ninth Circuit held that FAAAA preemption did not apply to bar broker liability in a personal injury case. C.H. Robinson argues that the safety exception to FAAAA, on which the Ninth Circuit relied in its opinion, should not apply in this context. The Court has requested that Respondent file a response by June 18.  In the interim, a number of amici briefs have been filed in support of C.H. Robinson’s position, encouraging the Court to accept the appeal and review the issue.  For more information, see C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., Petitioner v. Allen Miller
