The American Arbitration Association (AAA) has amended its standard Construction Industry Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures. Rules were revised for Regular Track Cases (R), Fast Track Cases (F) and Large Cases (L), and became effective on October 1, 2009. A summary of significant changes as well as the revised rules and procedures can be viewed and obtained at the AAA website, www.adr.org. While no new revisions have been made to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures, those practitioners who use them should be aware that changes to the fee schedules, including the addition of a new Pilot Flexible Fee Schedule, were made effective on June 1, 2009. A summary of just 12 positive changes—in the view of the author—to the Construction Industry Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures is presented below.
