The Supreme Court heard oral argument in the case of Northwest v. Ginsberg, docket number 12-1038, on whether an airline need any reason to drop customers from its frequent flyer program. Northwest Airlines had dropped Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg from his WorldPerks program because, according to the airline, he had abused the program. At issue was whether under contract law Northwest Airlines had the sole right to terminate the agreement and whether Rabbi Ginsberg had a right under state law to bring his case or whether it was preempted by the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978.

Audio of the arguments was presented with still images of participants as they spoke. Justice Thomas did not speak. close
