Leahy REAX On Today’s SCOTUS Decision Concerning The Federal Arbitration Act

Unfortunately, this Supreme Court decision will serve to hide corporate wrongdoing and deprive employees who have suffered at the hands of their employers their fair day in court.  I agree with Justice Ginsburg’s dissent that protecting employers from class action suits from mistreated employees is “egregiously wrong.”  Preventing employees from banding together may serve large corporations, but it does not serve those who face injustice.  It stacks the deck against everyday Americans.  In the era of the #MeToo movement, when strength in numbers has proven critical to exposing the wrongdoing of powerful interests, this decision threatens to take us a step backward.
