(Reuters) - Corporations worried about the prospect of mass consumer
arbitration should be paying close attention to Verizon Wireless Inc’s
new case at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Verizon is appealing a July 22 ruling in which U.S. District Judge
Edward Chen of San Francisco denied the telecom’s motion to compel
arbitration of customer claims that the company deceptively tacked on
administrative fees to their monthly wireless bills.
