  •  I don't have an issue with arbitration… (6+ / 0-)

    …but I do have an issue with binding arbitration. I see no issue with an employer saying, "first step, we take your dispute to an arbitrator".

    If you feel your issue wasn't resolved then the court system should be there for any appeals, the binding part is a clear violation of due process rights. And no arbitration should take place that denies the plaintiff legal counsel.

    •  Stupid (0+ / 0-)

      "Are you talking to me, because I think you think you're talking to me"?

      Alito was saying that the whole idea of being stupid for signing a stupid "binding" arbitration agreement was indeed the purpose of such agreements to maintain the Corporate Lean SCOTUS upholds. Wallstreet, BP and Cheney knows what is best for America.
      Alito:

      How many times and in how many ways must we tell you that, are you stupid?

      I don't know about you, but i am getting the message. Alito left room for us not to like it though. Remedy in which the courts can become more involved versus condencending?
      Scratch the binding clause next time, then ask the courts for redress on you being denied employment, credit, etc. based upon this whole lopsided contract.
      Whose stupid now besides Alito? Besides, he told you to do it.
