VIDEO: Paul Bland Discusses Class Actions and Justice with Media Mattters

Class actions are often the only way that individuals can seek justice when they are faced with widespread corporate wrongdoing, but a series of recent  Supreme Court decisions threatens to eliminate the right of consumers and workers with similar claims to band together to hold corporations accountable.  Without class actions, Americans will have to take on corporations alone – often in the rigged system of forced arbitration – if they have the will to take them on at all.

In the above video, Media Matters talks with Paul Bland, AAJ member and Executive Director of Public Justice, about why class actions are necessary to ensure that workers and consumers can hold corporate wrongdoers accountable.
