I was invited to participate in a seminar sponsored by and attended by federal judges. Since judges from Alabama attended the seminar, I felt honored to be included in the program. I, along with Peter Fruin, a lawyer from Birmingham, and Bill Slade, National Director of AAA, took part in a spirited discussion of forced arbitration. I suspect my inclusion in the program was because of my well-known position on the evils of arbitration. It’s also fairly well known that I have never been hesitant to speak out on this subject.
In any event, I really enjoyed the program and got the impression that I wasn’t the only person there who felt arbitration was not good for consumers. I told the group why I felt arbitration wasn’t fair when a dispute between a consumer and a large corporation was the subject of controversy. I also made it clear, however, that there was nothing wrong with arbitration so long as all parties agreed voluntarily predispute to have arbitration settle any disputes that might later arise.
