Forced Arbitration Denies Day in Court

Injustice, Thy Name Is Forced Arbitration

Forced arbitration robs ordinary people of their day in Court.

Javier lost his job when he was deployed overseas despite federal laws protecting employment for members of the armed services.

Alan and other small business owners were told they couldn't take American Express to court for charging exorbitant exchange rates.

Marjorie, Roberta, Richard, Dean, Frances, Beulah, Horace and Mary all suffered terribly and died from nursing home neglect, yet their families were not able to sue the nursing home companies.

How could injustices like these be allowed to exist in America where everyone has the right to take wrongdoers to court? It's called forced arbitration, and you or a loved one, may be next to lose your rights. And, it's a violation of our constitutional rights.

The Seventh Amendment of the United States Constitution, provides:

"In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."

Article I, section 15 of the Texas Constitution provides in pertinent part:

"The right of trial by jury shall remain inviolate."

Texas Courts should protect rights of the citizens of Texas under the Constitutions of the United States and Texas by ensuring that the right to trial is preserved.
