This Note discusses the inherent problems that come with arbitration clauses in contracts of adhesion. Further, this Note will address the likelihood of a potential change – through future Supreme Court interpretations of the FAA or new legislation. Something must be done to protect those with inferior bargaining power from being forced, through contracts of adhesion, to give up their right to bring class action lawsuits. If Congress, the Supreme Court, and regulatory agencies maintain the status quo, companies will retain the ability to improperly strip consumers of their rights and their due compensation nationwide.
