This forced giving up of redress of grievance rights has been sanctioned by our RW Supreme Court as explained in today's letter from Public Citizen

The worst U.S. Supreme Court ruling in recent memory, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, has had a devastating impact on the U.S. political system.
One year ago today, the court handed down another ruling, one thatís had a similarly devastating impact on our civil justice system: AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion.
Both decisions have emboldened corporate lobbyists and corporate law firms in their quest to increase profits by rigging the system against consumers.

The court ruled in Concepcion that corporations can unilaterally cut off peopleís right to band together in class actions against illegal and unfair corporate practices.


Here's a link to more info on THAT

We have to get the Supreme Court back on the side of the American People.
