Consumer Protections

Consumer Protections

There are efforts underway in state legislatures to protect corporations from legal liability by imposing mandatory arbitration clauses, waiving the Seventh Amendment right to a jury in civil actions, limiting or ending class actions, closing the federal courts to certain claims, and capping damages, which interferes with plaintiffs’ access to counsel. Our courts must be open to hearing the claims brought by the “little guy”–the consumer, the people who are suffering from pollution, and the people who are wrongfully injured from corporations. As an attorney, I know all too well that having a fair fight is many times as important, if not more important, than the final outcome. Having a fair hearing makes sure that all evidence is heard and the correct law is considered. I support the FAIR Act, which ends forced arbitration. In Congress, I will also draft and support laws that secure justice based on the merits of the case. Source: 7/25/2022
