A lawyer who's crafted many of the arbitration contracts at the core of AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion says consumer advocates will have another chance to overrule the U.S. Supreme Court before the Obama administration's new Consumer Finance Protection Bureau.

Alan S. Kaplinsky, Chair of Ballard Spahr's Consumer Financial Services Group, said that the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act directs the Bureau to study such arbitration agreements with an eye toward banning provisions it deems "anticonsumer." As the impact of Concepcion sinks in, Mr. Kaplinsky said, "I am sure there will be an effort to lobby Congress and the new Bureau to do something."
