After my recent post on the pros and cons of court vs. arbitration, I was contacted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA). They told me that, contrary to what is a widely held belief about panels “splitting the baby,” their internal studies actually show that is not, in fact, the case. The summary of their findings is worth reading.
Now, I don’t know the particulars of their study protocol, and AAA is certainly not a disinterested party, but the numbers are impressive. Perhaps AAA arbitration panels, at least, are not King Solomon.
Do you have a AAA arbitration experience? Share it in the comments below.
