Re: arbitration or millions of single lawsuits
said by zalternate:Can you imagine the effort it would take to get that many people (hell even 2,000 people across the 50 states) organized enough to make this happen though? I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that unless you're ready to dump $$$ into a web-server and somehow get the word out via Twitter/Facebook/etc about this then it more than likely not going to come to fruition, and that's exactly why the companies want arbitration, because they know that people won't take the time to do this probably 95% of the time.
An Arbitrator is to be a "disinterested third party" »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitration and not someone that the company hires(and houses in the corporate office) to make sure that he rules for the company.
So how about instead of one class-action, people submit 5 million single 'small claims court' lawsuits. That will hit the scum in the pocket book and since with so many cases, the corporate scum will definitely not show up for all those cases spread over the 50 States. Since the company is doing business in your State, they have to comply with your State Laws and not some lame ass 'company registered State', that is corporate friendly.
