Recently, I moved from Ohio to Colorado. In all of my transactions in Ohio, I have never been asked to sign away my rights to sue in court. In an attempt to purchase a new Honda in Colorado, we got all the way through the deal process and well into the signing process when the financial guy pulled out an Arbitration Agreement. I refused to sign it and he said no one has ever questioned it. He went to ask someone else and returned to tell me that without a signed Arbitration Agreement form, he could not sell me the car.
Is this a new thing or is this localized to certain states? I know the AT&T Supreme Court decision last year basically said these were enforceable regardless of what the company does. Just looking for some guidance here.
