Cordova v. World Finance Corp.

Cordova v. World Finance Corp.

Public Justice argued the winning appeal before the New Mexico Supreme Court in the case of a woman trapped by a consumer loan contract that allowed the lender to sue her, but limited her redress to mandatory arbitration. The woman wanted to sue World Finance after the company harassed her and her employer to the point that the woman lost her job.

In April 2009, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that World Finance’s arbitration clause was unconscionable and could not be enforced.
