  1. This is going to be a real mess, because AAA has also dropped consumer arbitrations. Consumers are whistling Dixie if they think they’ll be better off in court. NAF arbitrators are independent lawyers and former judges. I think most of them, like me, tried mightily to guard the rights of the consumer and require the creditors to justify their claims. The fact is, most debtors owe the money and have no defense, and going to court will not change the result. Without an arbitration system, the costs to all parties and to the public are going to escalate.
