National Arbitration Forum. Rent-A-Judge! How Arbitration Is Undermining Justice for Consumers

Troy Cornock is a regular guy, not unlike you and me. Like most us, Troy had never heard of the National Arbitration Forum (NAF). One day, Troy received a letter from NAF saying he owed money on a credit card.

Here's the problem: Troy never signed a credit card agreement, and Troy's ex-wife had made all of the charges. Ex-spouses are known to do that. Yet, the NAF ordered Troy to pay more than $9,000 anyway.

Troy’s story is just a small example of how “mandatory arbitration clauses” have pervaded the consumer landscape and prevented customers from getting their day in court. Rent-A-Judge and get the decision you want!
