Once Again, Court Says Telco Can't Force Arbitration Over A Lawsuit
from the been-there,-done-that dept
This is hardly the first time we've seen such a case. In fact, the issue of whether or not companies can force their consumers to go to binding arbitration (which sides with the company somewhere around 95% of the time) over filing a class action lawsuit has been decided in favor of the consumers' rights to file the lawsuits over and over and over again. So, it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that a court has told AT&T that it cannot force customers into binding arbitration rather than a class action lawsuit over bogus fees it charged.
