Title: Oregon Law Review : Vol. 90, No. 3, p. 703-728 : Tsunami: AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion Impedes Access to Justice
Author: Sternlight, Jean R.
Abstract: It is highly ironic but no less distressing that a case with a name meaning “conception” should come to signify death for the legal claims of many potential plaintiffs. The U.S. Supreme Court’s fiveto- four decision in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion is proving to be a tsunami that is wiping out existing and potential consumer and employment class actions. This Article will explore the decision; how the decision is being interpreted by lower courts; the decision’s impact on parties to such litigation; and how, if not legislatively limited, this case will substantially harm consumers, employees, and perhaps others.
