REALLY outrageous example of forced arbitration


To have a sense of just how unfair the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions relating to forced arbitration are, THIS is a powerful example.  

An 88 year old consumer goes to a Rent-A-Center to rent a refrigerator.  One of their employees comes to his house, in uniform, and severely beats him, leaving him to be found three days later.  But he can't go to court, because all his legal rights are tossed into forced arbitration.  

Who would ever expect that signing a consumer agreement about a refrigerator would mean that you've lost your rights if someone invades your home and savagely beats you?

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
