Last Thursday, the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law held its second hearing on H.R. 3010 (PDF link), Rep. Hank Johnson’s Arbitration Fairness Act. A number of consumer blogs have posted reactions. Rather rehash them all, here are links to some of the best content:
- Paul Bland at CL&P Blog gives a fairly comprehensive summary of the day’s testimony.
- Carey Greenberg-Berger at the Consumerist liveblogged the hearing.
- Even The Motley Fool weighed in on the side of consumers, saying “Mandatory Arbitration Stinks.” [via Tortdeform]
Not a peep yet about the hearings from National Arbitration Forum, one of the strongest reasons this bill needs to be passed.
