ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) mission is “to make consumer financial markets work for consumers, responsible providers, and the economy as a whole.” But it now appears the CFPB is expanding its mission to include more lucrative class action lawsuits.Most consumer banking agreements, including credit card and loan agreements, currently have a mandatory arbitration clause which specifically “bans consumers from seeking redress for potential issues in a court of law.” In other words, consumers sign away their rights to file a lawsuit against a bank or credit union. The rationale behind this is that arbitration is a highly useful tool in stopping frivolous and very expensive lawsuits which, by the CFPB’s own admission, typically result in no payments to consumers but results in huge payouts by the banks, with the money presumably going to the legal firms representing the class.To place the “right to bring suit” back in the hands of consumers, the CFPB proposes to prohibit language in agreements that bar consumers from filing or participating in a class action. Note that it does not ban arbitration. If accepted, the same proposal provides some specific estimates on the resulting consequences of this new ruling.
