In the News Today – November 4, 2015

In a column entitled, “Arbitration is Everywhere and Not All Bad”, Yale Law Professor Stephen L. Carter takes issue with several key points of the New York Times‘ recent three-part anti-arbitration report. For example, he writes the Times failed to mention an analysis of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau data by professors Jason Scott Johnston of the University of Virginia School of Law and Todd Zywicki of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. That analysis found “consumers fare better in single arbitration settlements (not awards) than in class-action settlements.” (Bloomberg View)

Edelson PC, the Chicago-based plaintiffs’ firm that specializes in privacy litigation, announced that it will be opening a San Francisco office, “to be closer to key federal courts as well to technology companies that the firm frequently attacks with class actions.” (Bloomberg BNA/The Recorder)
