Letter: Supreme Court’s Ruling on Compelling Arbitration

May 30, 2018

In a 5 to 4 decision, the Supreme Court’s more conservative justices ruled that companies can use arbitration clauses to block employees from banding together in class action suits. Sanford Jaffe, co-director of the Center for Negotiation and Conflict Resolution and an an assistant to the United States attorney general, 1965-67, writes how future historians will view the Supreme Court’s decision allowing companies to use arbitration clauses in contracts to prohibit workers from filing class-action suits as a major step backward, accelerating the move away from a public to a private system of justice and further limiting access to the public courts.
