Courts - "‘Judicial Arbitration’ Is Unconstitutional, Say Newspapers"

Jacob Gershman's post last evening in the WSJ LawBlog began:

Should the nation’s premier forum for corporate litigation have the right to arbitrate business disputes in secret?

Some of the nation’s largest news outlets — taking sides against the Delaware Court of Chancery judges and the pro-business U.S. Chamber of Commerce — don’t think so.

The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and other major news organizations are urging a federal appeals court to declare unconstitutional a Delaware law granting the state’s influential Court of Chancery the power to arbitrate business disputes in secret. It’s the latest development in a high-stakes constitutional case whose outcome could change the way corporate America settles business disagreements.
