    Maybe some, but I can assure you, I'm not one of them. I really prefer expedited process. I actually want case resolution.

    A failed appeal to hatred of an entire class of people that can be considered "other". This is the driving force behind popular support of the modern Republican Party.

    Sad...

    But the defendants' attorney fees are only relevant to demonstrate that mandatory arbitration clauses wherein prospective plaintiffs surrender their rights to sue are made in order to rig the game in favor of the prospective defendants, and to deny the prospective plaintiffs any real access to justice.
    There is a flip side to it. If the arbitration clauses are forced to be removed, the companies will put away more money to pay attorney fees. That means less money to lend and more people getting told, "No."

    I've been to arbitration a few times. They were quicker and easier than going to a trial.

    It also makes it more likely they will not need to, because they would make more fair policies if they are subject to the threat of a class-action suit.

    Our society is litigious for a reason - and a good reason, at that. Yes, anyone can file a lawsuit. Meritless ones can be dismissed. Those with merit can go to trial.
