McKinney v. Google, Inc. et al Doc. 49 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Milstein, Adelman & Kreger, LLP 2800 Donald Douglas Loop North Santa Monica, California 90405 Grand Hous., Inc., 105 F.Supp.2d 562, 573 (S.D. Miss. 2000) (finding that MMWA precludes binding arbitration of written warranty claims); Wilson v. Waverlee Homes, Inc., 954 F.Supp. 1530, 1532 (M.D. Ala. 1997) (MMWA precludes binding arbitration of MMWA claims, in part because it provides access to a judicial forum and because the FTC regulations have so interpreted it). As TMobile's anti-class action waiver clause attempts to do so, it is also not enforceable under the MMWA. V. CONCLUSION For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiff respectfully requests that this Court deny T-Mobile's motion to compel.
