Correcting a Flaw in the Arbitration Fairness Act

Correcting a Flaw in the Arbitration Fairness Act by Loyola Law Professor Imre Szalai. in the Journal of Dispute Resolution:

The Introduction:

The proposed Arbitration Fairness Act of 2013 will ban courts from enforcing
arbitration agreements in the employment and consumer contexts. This law will
protect America's employees and consumers by keeping the courthouse door open
to critical civil rights, employment, and consumer protection litigation. However,
the proposed Arbitration Fairness Act suffers from a subtle flaw: it is uncertain
whether the law will apply to the states. This flaw, which arises from one of the
greatest constitutional errors the Supreme Court has ever made, must be corrected
in order to provide the broadest protection to millions of American employees and
consumers, and to prevent years of needless litigation and confusion.
