Pope Francis hosts summit on abuse, a N.J. priest speaks publicly about how McCarrick allegedly ruined his life
Less than a week after Theodore McCarrick became the first cardinal ever defrocked, a New Jersey priest has for the first time agreed to be interviewed about his accusations that McCarrick sexually abused him in the 1990s and the effect the alleged abuse has had on his life and career.
In a recent Editorial, the New Jersey Law Journal extolled the virtues of the arbitration process to resolve disputes for both consumers and employees.
Let’s be clear: Mandatory Arbitration deprives workers and consumers of their rights, most importantly their constitutional right to have their disputes decided by a jury of their peers. While the Federal Arbitration Act has been law for decades, the misnomer advanced by some attorneys and the Editorial Board is that it is somehow favored over the Constitutional Right to a Trial by Jury. It is not. Its goal was to correct the refusal of courts to enforce arbitration awards. New Jersey, as other states, has the right to subject arbitration awards to ordinary contract principles. This is exactly the reason why the Flanzman Case was correctly decided.
