Ditto the sentiments expressed by Tim in response to Mr. Kaplan's post. Mr. Kaplan's outrage is either feigned or he's unable to rationally accept his role in preventing access to the courts to seek redress for civil rights violations, fraud against uneducated consumers, etc.

Tim

"The notion that either I, or my views, stand in opposition to the civil rights movement or Thurgood Marshall's efforts in Brown v. Board of Education is both offensive and defamatory."

But you're perfectly content with a system of mandatory arbitration that prevents people from accessing the courts to vindicate their rights under the signature legislative accomplishment of the civil rights era--the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (and Title VII in particular).

For any readers interested in a truthful description of my background, as compared to Mr. Bland's misrepresentations, I'd encourage you to actually read my linked in profile at http://www.linkedin.com/pub/a/49a/ab1. The full sentence from my linked in profile quoted by Mr. Bland actually reads: "Although some lawsuits are necessary, they are inevitably costly and wasteful." The notion that either I, or my views, stand in opposition to the civil rights movement or Thurgood Marshall's efforts in Brown v. Board of Education is both offensive and defamatory.

I meant to say "Those sections, *unlike* the Dispute Resolution Section..."

I'd suggest folks contact members of the *other* ABA sections. Those sections, like the Dispute Resolution Section, do not consist primarily of people who make their money from arbitration. A majority of representatives of the many other sections have to agree to the resolution in the 555-member ABA House of Delegates for it to pass.

Contact members of ABA Dispute Resolution Section.
