I am not sure how the appeal process works. But in the arbitrators award it states
"When Respondent filed an Answer, they included an avalanche of documents. These documents included copies of a small claims court filing arising out of a credit card account in Claimant’s name with an identification number of “2457”. Among the small claims court filing documents, is a pleading filed in the small claims court seeking to compel arbitration of the dispute, and attaching a Demand for Arbitration through the AAA for a debt in the amount of $22,773.70. There are also interrogatories propounded by the Respondent that suggests that the subject of the small claims court actions in an account identified as “2457”. The filings with the small claims court seem to indicate that at that time, the Demand for Arbitration of that “2457” account dispute had been dismissed by the AAA for failure of Claimant to provide necessary filing fee."
Then in the footnote the arbitrator adds "The documents presented to the Small claims court did not include a AAA case number, and therefore it is not completely clear that the AAA case dismissed was docketed as case number AAA22K."
Could this just be an easy fix if I prove that AAA22K case IS from this lawsuit? I don't know how in depth or what is entailed in an appeal.
