The Gates of Hell[ish Mandatory Arbitration]?

Arb clause Thanks to Michigan State University's Daniel Barnhizer and his student Christpher Anderson, we have the picture at right, which Mr. Anderson found taped to a local burger franchise while he was home in Texas for the holidays.

If you can't read the text, here it is in full: 

"Arbitration Notice"

"By entering these premises, you hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims of any kind whatsoever, which arise from the products, services or premises, by way of binding arbitration, not litigation. No suit or action may be filed in any state or federal court. Any arbitration shall be governed by the FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, and administered by the American Mediation Association.

"Arbitration Notice"

Further research by contracts profs provides further information regarding the aforementioned American Mediation Association on this website.  Even as we speak, contracts profs are debating the effectiveness of this notice and of the counter-notice suggested by Ian Ayres here.
