The Supreme Court’s conservative majority put additional limits on class-wide arbitration Wednesday, handing business interests a victory over a vigorous dissent from the four liberal justices.

The decision is the latest in a sequence of pro-arbitration decisions from the Supreme Court, which the liberal bloc believes have seriously undermined the rights of workers.

The article goes on to state the following:

The case arose in California when Frank Varela sued his employer, Lamps Plus, after a negligent employee revealed his personal tax information in a phishing scheme. Approximately 1,300 other workers were exposed to identity theft due to the error.

In comments written in dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote, “The Court, paradoxically reciting the mantra that consent is essential, has facilitated companies’ efforts to deny employees and consumers the important right to sue in court, and to do so collectively, by inserting solo-arbitration-only clauses that parties lacking bargaining clout cannot remove.”

“Ambiguity does not provide a sufficient basis to conclude that parties to an arbitration agreement agreed to sacrifice the principal advantage of arbitration,” Chief Justice John Roberts said, writing for the majority.

Roberts spoke against group arbitration citing cost, complexity, and efficiency, “thereby destroying the principle benefits of arbitration,” according to the Daily Caller.
