The New York Times just released a powerful three-part series entitled “Beware the Fine Print,” which deals with arbitration procedures in America. It is a must read for consumers everywhere to learn about the different ways big companies are getting over on consumers.
Part 1, “Arbitration Everywhere, Stacking the Decks of Justice,” describes the practice of forced arbitration used by several big companies, including American Express. These companies use forced arbitration as a way to get around the court system and prevent consumers from gathering together and forming a class action lawsuit.
Part 2, “In Arbitration, a Privatization of the Justice System,” provides several stories from people who were denied their day in court after a business had done them wrong.
Part 3, “In Religious Arbitration, Scripture is the Rule of Law,” discusses how even religious institutions are now being used to settle disputes outside of spiritual or family matters.
These articles expose the unfair practices put forth by big corporations who want to deny justice to consumers when they have been done wrong. We hope you enjoy these articles and learn something from them. Share them on social media and let us know what you think!
