It is always a little disconcerting when, for example, in the employment realm a rehabilitation center gets sued for disability discrimination, or a center for the aged gets sued for age discrimination. 


We now learn that the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), probably the nation’s premier alternative dispute resolution provider, just got sued in New Jersey in a Fair Credit Reporting Act class action.  The plaintiff/applicant for employment claims that his offer of employment was rescinded because of his credit report which was relied upon by the AAA without providing him the opportunity to dispute or contest the accuracy of the information in it. 


The AAA has not yet been available for comment.
