Proposed Arbitration Limitations and the FAA: Are We Headed for a Showdown?

The Legal Intelligencer | January 17, 2017
By: Michael Olsan and Daryn Rush

Attorneys representing consumers have for many years sought to escape mandatory arbitration clauses in contracts, arguing that the arbitration system inherently and unfairly favors corporate defendants. While the recent attacks have focused on arbitration clauses in consumer contracts, arbitration clauses in other types of contracts—e.g., employment contracts and insurance policies—could also be challenged.

Michael Olsan and Daryn Rush provide a brief summary of prior challenges to arbitration, review recent developments adding fuel to the fire, and examine what the future of arbitration may look like in their article, "Proposed Arbitration Limitations and the FAA."
