General Mills Proposes, Then Withdraws Limits On Class Action Lawsuits

Huff Post writes that General Mills, the cereal company, last week revealed a new rule that prevented people from joining class action lawsuits if they “joined [its] online communities.” Such actions might include company contest, or liking the company on Facebook. Those who violated the rule would have been limited to arbitration or informal negotiations as a means of conflict resolution. But in a blogpost on its corporate website a few days later, General Mills said it was changing back to its old legal terms.
