Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issues new arbitration rule

Most Florida debtors know that financial institutions do not issue credit cards until consumers have agreed to a long list of terms. These conditions often include provisions that require any disputes to be settled through binding arbitration. Lenders prefer arbitration because it is less public, less expensive and more predictable than traditional litigation. However, advocacy groups have claimed that these provisions sidestep the courts and are unfair to consumers.
