Arbitration Of Truth-In-Lending-Act Claims, Marshall E. Tracht

Articles & Chapters

In recent years, it has become increasingly common for lenders to include arbitration clauses in their consumer financing agreements. While federal law strongly supports the enforceability of arbitration provisions, there are a number of grounds on which their enforceability can be, and has been, challenged.

This article summarizes the state of the law on a number of major issues which have arisen in the attempt to use arbitration clauses in consumer financing agreements, focusing on Truth-in-Lending Act claims, including an analysis of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Green Tree Financial Corp. v. Randolph.
