The Arbitration Fairness Act Is In The House
By Alex Chasick, 4:24 PM on Fri Feb 13 2009, 8,257 views
The Arbitration Fairness Act, which will ban binding mandatory arbitration clauses from consumer, employment, and franchise contracts, was reintroduced in the House yesterday.
Rep. Hank Johnson, the original sponsor of the bill, was joined by 36 other House members and will likely get more support in the coming months.
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution where, instead of going to court, parties agree to make their case to an arbitrator, using fewer rules and a simpler procedure than typically found in litigation. The arbitrator's decision is usually binding on the parties.
Binding mandatory arbitration is the same as the above, except consumers are required to use arbitration (and forbidden from going to court) as part of doing business with the company. Most consumer contracts for credit cards, cars, homes, utilities, insurance, and even employment have clauses requiring binding arbitration, and preventing a consumer from suing if the company hurts him or her. The arbitrators are usually biased towards the company, which picks which arbitrator to use-and often pays the arbitrator's fees (unlike courts, which are funded by taxpayers).
Why do we support the Arbitration Fairness Act? In short, because mandatory binding arbitration is patently unfair to consumers. It is a joke of justice; a fake tribunal where injured consumers will almost always lose to corporations at the hands of a biased arbitrator.

Dear President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Trustee Farmer, Mr. Guttman, Ms. Neustadter, Judge Kevin Chang, Judge David Ezra, and All Concerned:
Due to the discovery of FACTS related to this lawsuit which I maintain is a "prior restraint" of my constitutional rights of Free Speech and a violation of Federal and State Anti-SLAPP statutes, I am adding the subject Exhibit.
You will find related information on-line at:
In light of the evidence of fraud, obstruction of justice, and undisclosed conflicts of interest provided by this Exhibit and related information, I again propose that you accept my standing offer that we attempt to NEGOTIATE a final settlement in this case. If you still do not wish to enter into settlement negotiations, then I ask that you perform your mandated review of this witness description and related web pages in accordance with Judge Ezra's prior restraint Order and advise me, whether or not, they contain any so-called "protected subject matter".
If I do not receive a response within 15 days, I will consider this to be an admission that these pages contain no "PSM", and that you will not object to any Motions that I may make to reopen this case.
Very truly yours,
Bobby N. Harmon, CPCU, ARM
