Another WIN for Corporations!

For years now, companies like AT&T have tried to bury fine print in user contracts stating that they cannot participate in class action lawsuits, but must instead participate in binding arbitration -- a process overseen by companies hired by AT&T where consumers lose more often than not. Judges time, time, and time again have told ISPs this isn't legal, and an appeals court in California had ruled that eroding user legal options with fine print as "unconscionable." The case was finally heard by The Supreme Court this week, who ruled 5-4 across party lines in AT&T's favor:

I have to say, nothing like having a few people (literally) pass sweeping laws for this country going past the elected body. After the citizen united case now this. Now I can't wait to see drug companies start doing this then when people find out their medication is causing brain damage or birth defects the company can't be sued. FANTASTIC. We do have the best system for the one's who can buy it.
