SCOTUS: Consumers Victorious, Lawyers Lose!

The AmSpecBlog has the straight scoop. You'll hear otherwise from all the usual suspects. (Such as newspapers who are slobbering-tight with P I lawyers....)

The Supreme Court handed down a ruling today in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, holding that the Federal Arbitration Act preempts a rule in California state contract law that nullifies class-action waiver clauses...

IOW, you can be held to an "arbitration" clause.

But, in fact, you'll most likely do a lot better with arbitration than with the P I lawyers. (Surprise!!!)
