Senator Al Franken Announces Plan to Reintroduce the Arbitration Fairness Act

In response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in AT&T, Mobility, LLC v. ConcepcionSenator Al Franken announced his plan to reintroduce the Arbitration Fairness Act . The Act would ban mandatory arbitration clauses in employment, consumer, and civil rights cases.

“This ruling is another example of the Supreme Court favoring corporations over consumers,” said Sen. Franken. “The Arbitration Fairness Act would help rectify the Court’s most recent wrong by restoring consumer rights. Consumers play an important role in holding corporations accountable, and this legislation will ensure that consumers in Minnesota and nationwide can continue to play this crucial role.”
