AT&T: forced arbitration isn’t “forced” because no one has to buy service

The terms of service for AT&T Internet and DIRECTV require customers to “agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims” against AT&T. Class actions and trials by jury are prohibited, although individual cases in small claims courts are allowed. AT&T doesn’t offer any way to opt out of the arbitration/small claims provision, so the only other option is not buying service from AT&T. By contrast, some home Internet and TV providers such as Comcast offer a method for opting out. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica http://ift.tt/2saAcnL
