Presidents’ Day trivia: the official federal holiday is Washington’s Birthday, but never falls on Washington’s actual birthday; the holiday in Alabama is George Washington’s and Thomas Jefferson’s (but not Lincoln’s) Birthday, even though Jefferson was born in April.

Recent study on arbitration clauses

One of the reasons I emphasize arbitration in class so much is because arbitration agreements waive one of the most fundamental constitutional rights in a civil society: the right of access to courts to settle disputes. A recent study shows that a significant number of Americans don’t understand what an arbitration clause means even after reading a clause that was “easier to understand and much shorter than the average credit card arbitration clause”:

We found that almost none of the consumers understood the arbitration clause. Many thought the clause did not take away their rights. Thus, nearly half thought that a clause that said they couldn’t sue in court didn’t say that at all, while only 14 percent realized that it blocked them from suing. Similarly, 48 percent thought that they could be part of a class-action suit under a contract that said they couldn’t be. Just 12 percent recognized that the contract barred them from bringing a class-action suit.

Caveat emptor.
