Arbitration

Arbitration has been used as an alternative to litigation as a method of amicably resolving disputes for over 80 years. In many cases, arbitration has benefited consumers by providing quicker and less expensive alternatives to litigation. Also, consumers with low value claims tend to benefit from the arbitration process, as attorneys are more reluctant to represent consumers that have low value claims. CBA believes arbitration can be a less costly and more effective method of dispute resolution for consumers and businesses, and attempts to ban pre-dispute arbitration are potentially harmful to consumers and may result in increased costs to consumers and unnecessary delay in deciding controversies arising from disputes. CBA believes arbitration is a meaningful and effective process for consumers and businesses to resolve disputes, and CBA is committed to efforts to oppose anti-arbitration legislation.
