Update: More Links to Commentary on AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion

Angel Harvey Rosenfeld and Todd Foreman on Consumer Watchdog don't care for the opinion much.

Andrew Cohen weighs in in The Atlantic here with the following bottom line:

This AT&T Mobility decision marks another shoe dropped on the heads of individuals who have sought fair redress against corporate interests this Term. But the next shoe from the Court's conservatives, due by the end of June in Wal-Mart v. Dukesisn't going to fall from the sky. Instead it's going to kick all those employment discrimination plaintiffs right in the ass. Just you watch.

For a sampling of what California class-action attorneys think of the ruling, there is this piece by Petra Pasternak in The Recorder

Daniel Fisher suggests on Forbes.com that the new consumer protection agency currently headed on an interim basis by Elizabeth Warren (pictured at left comforting a consumer facing mortgage foreclosure) will get medieval on this ruling's buttocks.

PCWorld's Nancy Gohring provides commentary here.  

"Chris in Paris" concludes on the Americablog that "Corporate America wins again."

On Public Citizen's blog, Deepak Gupta calls the decision, "a crushing blow to American consumers and employees."
