CR letter in support of H.R. 1423, the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act

SUMMARY: Consumer Reports letter to House Judiciary Committee in support of HR 1423, the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act, in anticipation of markup scheduled for September 10. The bill prohibits corporations from forcing consumers, workers, small businesses, and victims of civil rights violations to take legal disputes to mandatory arbitration instead of to a court of law.
