News and notes from around the interweb:
- After Wells Fargo opened 2 million fake bank and credit card accounts in the names of their customers they don’t think customers should be able to sue because those people were customers and so their adhesion contract which requires arbitration should apply. This will play out in court, but normatively it seems to me that actions taken outside of the banking relationship such as this shouldn’t be governed by the banking agreement.
