The United States Consumer Financial Regulatory Board (CFRB)  recently announced that it will be examining how arbitration clauses effect consumers and how effective arbitration is in resolving consumer issues.  While this examination is critical to exposing arbitration as a system designed to protect corporations from consumers, the more relevant inquiry is whether mandatory arbitration is in actual conflict with every citizen’s 7th Amendment right to trial by jury. The Seventh Amendment states that “the right of trial by jury shall be preserved.” There is nothing equivocal in that statement. Forcing consumers into mandatory arbitration where arbitration terms are literally stuffed down their throats preserves nothing but corporate abuse. Countrymen, Citizens, Consumers .  You should be outraged. Make your voice count.
