Three things to note about the American Arbitration Association's mediation offering on it's new look website;
1. The Triple A must have the biggest branding challenge in the business - I mean "American Arbitration Association Mediation" - how does that work on any level?
I suppose it works by doing what Kentucky Fried Chicken did when they rebranded to KFC when the F word got in the way, and make it AAA Mediation.
3. But on the down side, the small print says the online mediator "may suspend or terminate the mediation if s/he feels that the mediation will lead to an unjust or unreasonable result".
2. On the plus side though, it's only 50 bucks for a mediation online with a "trained, experienced AAA Staff Mediator".
Count'em $50. No, there are no hidden costs, that's it, $50 to mediate a two party $10,000 or less dispute.
Sorry? So if the mediator doesn't like where things are heading the mediator has a veto?
4. Oh yeah, there's a 4th; AAA ads tank;
