Court Rejects Debt-Relief Firm's Arbitration Clause

The Montana Supreme Court has ruled that a plaintiff can pursue a lawsuit against the company that promised to help her with credit-card debt relief, the Montana Standard's Kathleen J. Bryan reports. The plaintiff alleges that Global Client Solutions used '“deceptive and fraudulent representations to solicit her participation in an illegal debt settlement plan.”'

The Supreme Court held that the plaintiff's contract with debt-relief firm Global Client Solutions included an arbitration clause that lacked mutuality and was therefore unenforceable, Bryan reports.
