This can appear a valid argument but there is a solution to this apparent problem: It is called pro-bono representation.
If attorneys were "requested" to contribute a certain amount of such cases to the community, weaker consumers would have access to open litigation and they would not be "hurt" by the removal of the Arbitration Clause.
I can clearly recall a situation, some 23 years ago, when a fraud perpetrated by stock brokers could only be "arbitrated" by a select panel. On close examination, the panel consisted solely of...stock brokers. Is this the kind of justice that we want to bring back?
I sincerely hope not.
