Arbitration

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly From Brown's Pen

Consumers looking for bold action this year on laws protecting their wallets from rapacious drug companies, their privacy from the prying eyes of telecom companies, and their environment from the degradation of the oil and gas industry, didn't get any. But they did get some legislation that helps them take banks to court for fraud and to follow the money behind political ads.

The Ugly:

Supreme Preemption

I woke up this morning to a US Supreme Court decision that rewrote the traditional balance of power between California courts and federal power.  

Until today, California courts had been the final word on the “laws of your state,”  in other words what California law said on matters of contracts and contract interpretation specifically citing California law.
