Finding Light in Arbitration's Dark Shadow

by Nicole G. Iannarone

This short essay in response to “Arbitration’s Dark Shadow” examines the light visible at the borders of mandatory arbitration’s shadow in one industry Professor Edwards highlights – securities disputes between an investor customer and a broker-dealer. Though Edwards is correct that mandatory arbitration is often a black box emmeshed in shadow, the few instances where light exists in the form of public data should be highlighted, examined, and studied. We should not close our eyes in the dark. Instead, we should adjust to lessened light and determine what we can learn from the information we can see.
