FUNNY, THE NEW YORK TIMES HATES THE USE OF ARBITRATION IN CIVIL SUITS BECAUSE IT DENIES PEOPLE THEIR “DAY IN COURT,” but it’s strongly in favor of campus sexual assault tribunals that do the same thing. Tentative explanation: Both trial lawyers and universities are major Democratic constituencies, so simple decency demands that both get what they want.

Just note this bit:

If the case had been heard in civil court, Ms. Pierce would have been able to appeal, raising questions about testimony, destruction of evidence and potential conflicts of interest.

But arbitration, an investigation by The New York Times has found, often bears little resemblance to court.

The parallels are stunning. . . .
