The next time you sign a contract, make sure you look closely and make sure you aren’t signing away your rights to a jury. One of the fundamental principles of our court system, is that in most situations a Plaintiff is entitled to have a jury hear their case. Well it appears that arbitration clauses may be replaced by what is called a "jury waiver", which is a clause in the contract that states that the parties to the contract waive their right to a jury trial and would have their case heard by the judge.

Please make sure that you fully read the contract to make sure you aren’t waiving your right to a jury trial by signing that document.
