Forced Litigation Benefits Only Lawyers, ILR President Rickard Says

In Corporate Counsel, U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform President Lisa A. Rickard (ILR) said bills that would eliminate arbitration are really a “forced litigation scheme that will cut most people off from justice” and enrich plaintiffs’ lawyers.

Rickard said that by introducing the “Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act,” the “trial bar and its congressional allies are once again setting the stage to try to eliminate arbitration and flood the courts with a wave of lawsuits.” That bill, and other related bills that were also introduced yesterday, “would eliminate the ability of the vast majority of employees and consumers to solve most disputes, while creating class action lawsuits that primarily benefit plaintiffs’ lawyers.”
