Lost in the Fine Print

FinePrintThe Alliance for Justice has just released a documentary entitled “Lost in the Fine Print.”  The documentary is narrated by former Labor Secretary Robert Reich.

It demonstrates how forced arbitration is slipped by the vast majority of Americans – whether as consumers, workers, or small-business people – in ways that almost none of them will notice or recognize. The system is designed by the stronger parties to disputes – generally huge corporations – to favor them in disputes. Forced arbitration’s rapid spread has been aided by a series of 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decisions that would never have been anticipated by the framers of our Constitution.
