Bloomberg Businessweek published an article yesterday with the hopeful title, Consumers May See New Limits on Mandatory Arbitration.

Concepcion: Judicial, Regulatory, and Strategic Legal Responses to High Court’s 2011 Ruling. Mayer Brown LLP partners Andy Pincus and Evan Tager, who argued on behalf of AT&T Mobility in the case in the Supreme Court and in the Ninth Circuit, respectively, were our speakers.
