Arbitration Clauses in Military Servicemembers Credit Agreements

The New York Times reports:

The changes, which are being proposed by the Defense Department, would strengthen protections for military members by vastly expanding the kinds of credit covered by the law’s interest rate cap. The proposal also requires that creditors enhance their disclosures to military members, mandating that the lenders tell military members that they should first try to find alternatives to the costly forms of credit.
 
Creditors could also no longer require service members to agree to arbitration, a concession that would strip borrowers of their rights to fight in court.
