Are American Companies Less Innovative in DSD Because Consumer Arbitration is Permissible?

Interesting post by Rick Bales over at Workplace Prof Blog — Rick suggests that European countries may be ahead of the U.S. in development of dispute systems design because the EU countries did not allow the process of consumer arbitration to take hold. American companies, bolstered by Supreme Court rulings, are less innovative in dispute resolution because they have no incentive to develop an alternative to consumer arbitration agreements with their infamous class action waiver provisions.

  1. The next issue of the Dispute Resolution Magazine includes an “International Dispatch” on this topic. Watch for it!
