Investigation: New Home Heartbreak
Trump - NAHB Homebuilders Shoddy Construction and Forced Arbitration

 

Outrageous! Buy a New Home - Don’t Sue and Shut Up
Homebuilders will stop at nothing – Now Buyers must agree not to Speak
Beware of New Builder Clause – Homebuilder requires that homebuyer sign clauses forcing buyers to give up their constitutional rights.  It’s a decision between constitutional rights and the American Dream.

Why a survey indicating Texas is tops in limiting lawsuit judgments is bad news for consumers
IF Texans needed any evidence that the tort reform drive in the state has gone too far, they need only look at a study conducted by a pro-business think tank, the Pacific Research Institute. Although its purpose is to promote further efforts around the country to limit the number of lawsuits and size of judgments, the survey rankings suggest that the last major tort reform legislation passed in the Texas Legislature in 2003 has tipped the balance too far in favor of defendants... Alex Winslow, the executive director of the Austin-based consumer advocate group Texas Watch, says the state's new No. 1 ranking is nothing to crow about. "If your goal is to allow senior citizens and children to be abused without accountability, or to allow insurance companies to turn their backs on homeowners, or to allow big drug companies to knowingly peddle dangerous pharmaceuticals, then sadly Texas is the place for you," he said.

KB Home Class Action Binding Arbitration Case
Wednesday, 22 February 2006
KB Home Class Action Binding Arbitration Case to be ruled on in a Laredo District Court

At issue is that KB Home misled and misinformed homeowners of their consumer rights and remedies, that their actions were in violation of the 1979 federal consent decree, and that the clause is invalid and unenforceable. Houston lawyer Alice Oliver-Parrott, the attorney representing homeowners, says that if they win the approval, she will ask the judge to have KB Home notify consumers that binding arbitration provisions are void and unenforceable.
