(photo by Vilanova, MorgueFile)

In this federal case, the Ninth Circuit held that the addition of an arbitration clause to the cell phone service contract, imposed by way of the posting of a revised contract on its website with no pre-existing notice to its subscribers was unenforceable.  The class action plaintiffs were therefore not required to arbitrate their claims and the class action waiver (also imposed upon subscribers in this same manner) was unenforceable.  Douglas v.
