    The Uber Case: The Future of Consumer Arbitration?

    12 PM EST

    In Meyer v. Uber Technologies, the Second Circuit concluded that a “reasonably prudent smartphone user” received reasonable notice when signing up for the Uber app that they were agreeing to arbitrate and forego any class action claim.  Likewise, following a Congressional rebuke, the CFPB withdrew a proposed rule that would have severely curtailed such arbitration agreements in consumer finance contracts.  In light of such developments, what is the future of consumer class action claims?  Regardless of the enforceability of arbitration provisions, is arbitration an effective venue to prosecute or defend antitrust claims?
