Prof. Prentiss Cox Contributes to Op-Ed in Baltimore Sun about the Danger of Not Reading the Fine Print in Online Contracts

Professor Prentiss Cox contributed to an Op-Ed in the Baltimore Sun about the danger of not reading the fine print in online contracts with companies. The authors write that because of this, millions of Americans have lost their rights due to businesses “inserting incomprehensible terms in fine print contracts they know consumers do not read. The businesses argue that consumers are bound by these terms, which might as well be written in a foreign language they’re so incomprehensible.” Among these rights, consumers lose “the right to file your case in court, you lose the constitutional right to a jury trial, you lose the right to appeal wrong decisions.”
