Consumers are fighting back against last year’s Supreme Court decision in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, which decided that consumers who signed AT&T phone contracts with mandatory arbitration clauses had waived the right to bring a class action suit against the company. Two consumer-advocate attorneys have set up a website designed to determine how many consumers would be willing to file individual arbitration claims against a company. Once there are enough consumers interested, the lawyers begin filing masses of claims against the company with the goal of overwhelming the company with individual claims.

Alan S. Kaplinsky, a partner at Ballard Spahr who helps companies write their arbitration agreements, commented that the site is “very misguided” and pointed out that arbitration allows consumers to resolve their disputes more quickly and inexpensively.
