Response to Sharon’s McCann’s I Had Heard of the American Arbitration Association.
You have no idea how much I feel your pain and outrage. I am so sorry to see anyone join our club of the clause cursed consumer.
Can you believe we thought this would be less confrontational, faster and cheaper? Like the rest of the very duped American people, we believed the spin.
Our depositions were degrading and conducted in such an uncivilized manner. The lawyers taunted, screamed, belittled, and laughed at us. They would roll their eyes and make noises.
Your term, profit vultures fits these lawyers as well as AAA. I refer to AAA as a demented collection agency. Our case was a horrible three days. We all swore to tell the truth but, it seemed my husband and I were the only ones who took it seriously. The arbitrator did rule they committed fraud. She had too because there were other cases where they sued their own subcontractors and used my house as the example of the most defective... before we ever saw it.
We got 5% of what we ask for and she ruled we had to pay their attorneys' fees for daring to try to go to court for fraud.
I am so sorry, I can truly empathize.
