23andMe Class Action at the Court of Appeals

Yesterday was the oral argument at the Ninth Circuit in our appeal of Judge Koh's ruling that we had to take everything to arbitration instead of staying in federal court. The appeal was fully briefed early last year and the clerk notified us that the panel of three appellate judges would hear oral argument on May 12. This is rather unusual as the appeals court handles most cases just on the papers without setting it for live argument.

Here's the video from the Court's YouTube channel (yes, the federal appeals court has a YouTube channel -- awesome).

The comments from the judges are encouraging and we remain hopeful that they'll do the right thing and reverse. The customers of 23andMe who were ripped off with this fake product ought to be able to have their day in court.
