United States District Court for Northern District strikes down THE FINISH LINE, INC.’S arbitration agreement in Capili v. The Finish Line, Inc., 116 F.Supp.3d 1000 (2015)

I have seen some arbitration agreements that seem reasonable and then some that are outright abominable.  The Finish Line, Inc.’s arbitration agreement, that an employee submits to just by the fact of applying for or being employed by the company (you don’t need to sign to manifest consent), is on the right of the scale.  The US District Court agreed.  Plaintiff, represented by the Law Office of Allan Villanueva, argued seven unconscionable provisions in the agreement in Capili v. The Finish Line, Inc., 116 F.Supp.3d 1000 (2015). The court needed only three to strike down the agreement as permeated by unconscionability and therefore unenforceable.  Here is the link: https://www.leagle.com/decision/In%20FDCO%2020150723721.xml/Capili%20v.%20Finish%20Line,%20Inc
