Legal "The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that AT&T - and indeed, any company - could block class-action suits arising from disputes with customers and instead force those customers into binding arbitration. The ruling reverses previous lower-court decisions that classified stipulations in AT&T's service contract which barred class arbitration as 'unconscionable'."

Worst ruling to come out of the supreme court this year. And now I'm sure every corp out there is rushing to amend their EULA boilerplate to make sure that no user of products can sue them now. Because apparently consumer choice, means choosing the brand of lube they use when they fuck you.
