Fox & Hounds: AB 465: Trial Lawyers’ Attack On Arbitration

Study after study has shown that consumers and employees actually fare better in arbitration than in court. In a 2006 study by Mark Fellows, Legal Counsel at the National Arbitration Forum, analyzed data from California and found that consumers prevail in arbitration 65.5% of the time, as compared to 61% of the time in court. Many other studies have shown that arbitration is generally faster, cheaper and more effective than the litigation system. However, that is not stopping the trial lawyers in California from attacking arbitration. Why? Because when disputes are resolved through arbitration, the only ones who don’t benefit from arbitration are lawyers, who have fewer opportunities to profit from the abuse of our lawsuit system.
