New class action blog reports on a potentially major story about arbitration abuse

I'd like to welcome a new class action blog, The Oregon Class Action Blog, to the blogosphere.  The emphasis looks to be on class action developments in Oregon, but there are newsworthy posts about class action developments in other states as well.

Today's post, entitled Bombshell: State of Minnesota sues National Arbitration Forum, reports on Minnesota's recently filed lawsuit against National Arbitration Forum, a major arbitration provider.  The suit claims that NAF is a front for debt collectors and their law firms and not an independent arbitration service.  The story includes a link to the complaint (long, but worth reading, especially if you have ever harbored suspicions about NAF).

I've added a sidebar link to the Oregon Class Action Blog.  If class action and consumer law interests you, visit this new blog and offer some words of encouragement.
