ADR,  Arbitration

Go Ahead, Challenge that Arbitration Provision!

The arbitration provision of yet another giant is struck down.  See this How Appealing post for relevant links and a summary of a Washington Supreme Court decision voiding Cingular’s arbitration provision in its subscriber agreement. 

After recent decisions in the Ninth Circuit and California’s First District Court of Appeal voiding arbitration provisions, which I blogged about here, I suspect there may be a few lawyers scattered around the West pulling late nights poring over their clients’ arbitration provisions . . . and perhaps a few plaintiffs’ lawyers tearing up their arbitration demands and drafting complaints.
