Alejandro Caffarelli to Speak at Alliance for Justice Event Featuring Gov. Pat Quinn

On Friday, February 27, Alejandro Caffarelli will be part of a panel presentation accompanying the Alliance for Justice’s screening of the new short documentary on forced arbitration, “Lost in the Fine Print.” The event will take place at Loyola University Law School. According to the Alliance for Justice, “In our democracy, the courts hold out the promise of safeguarding everyone, regardless of wealth and power. But that fundamental promise of equal justice under law is facing a severe threat. Buried in everyday agreements for products, services, and jobs is fine print saying when you are harmed, you can’t go before an impartial jury or judge. Instead, these forced arbitration clauses send you to a decision-maker picked by the company that wronged you. Not surprisingly, one study found that arbitrators rule for companies over consumers 94 percent of the time. And you’re stuck with their decision because there’s no appeal. Some argue that forced arbitration is a rigged system that helps companies evade responsibility for violating anti-discrimination, consumer protection, and public health laws, while others say forced arbitration is simply more cost effective than litigation.” Additional information about the event can be found at
