Wells Fargo is accused of potentially “strip[ping] customers” of their constitutional rights by pursuing arbitration, according to a brief filed by plaintiffs in the leading class action suit over forced car insurance by the bank.

Plaintiff Katherine Jacob, in a reply to the embattled bank’s opposition to a preliminary injunction, said Wells Fargo was threatening to invoke arbitration clauses “burie[d]” in customer agreements, rather than face plaintiffs in court.
