Tell Somebody

Oct 26, 2010

On Wednesday, October 20, 2010, Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, and Deepak Gupta, Public Citizen attorney held a telephone press briefing to provide background on the argument in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, which the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Nov. 9. The court will decide whether companies can deny consumers and employees the right to band together through class actions to fight fraud, discrimination and other illegal practices. AT&T argues that the courts must enforce the fine print of its contracts that ban class actions. Public Citizen attorney Deepak Gupta will argue before the court on behalf of consumers, claiming that the contracts are unconscionable and unenforceable. 

 Tell Somebody was on the phone.

Also on October 20th, an agency of the Department of Labor held a town hall meeting about filing claims for workers who have health problems from working at the Kansas City nuclear weapons parts plant.
