The FAIR Act Puts Trial Lawyers First

By Harold Kim

Chief Operating Officer, U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform

Today’s vote on the so-called Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal or FAIR Act shows that the U.S. House of Representatives has put trial lawyers first, and employees and consumers second.

This bill will force Americans into our courtrooms, where trial lawyers will take a huge chunk of any money before consumers or employees see even one cent.

By voting to effectively ban arbitration, the House has decided to strip consumers, workers and businesses of the ability to resolve disputes without incurring the massive legal bills and long delays that come with traditional lawsuits.

The Senate should do the right thing and block this bill.
