The issue of whether a POA document which is otherwise sound must overtly state that the POA has the power to waive a constitutional right, (i.e. the right to a trial by jury) before it can be used by the POA to enter into an ADR agreement was heard by the SCOTUS.  The underlying cases originated out o Kentucky and involved the Wilkes & McHugh Firm wit cases against both Kindred and Extendicare.

Strangely Ivanka Trump and her son attended the hearing.
