  1. Hello, I was sued last September by PRA in Arizona for slightly over $2K for a Barclay's Card account. MTC Arbitration was granted by the Justice Court in December, and I went ahead and filed an arbitration case with AAA (per the CC agreement) this January 24th. After a couple of requests by AAA to PRA in Febuary for the $300 filing fee and $2500 arbitrator's deposit, PRA paid up the $2800 and I received the initiation email from AAA on March 9. Currently AAA is awaiting an "Initial List of People, Firms, Companies, and/or Groups Involved in the Arbitration" form from both parties due the 16th. PRA has not paid the $1400 case management fee as of yet. Here's the catch: after I filed the arbitration case on Jan 24th, PRA went ahead and filed a motion to dismiss the case WITH PREJUDICE in Court Feb 11th, and the motion has been granted and the court case dismissed. My copy of the motion got temporarily lost in the mail (by me), and when I saw it the other day a light bulb went off in my head. Can't I simply drop the arbitration case at this point and walk away from the matter with my hands clean? I saw a post by Harry Seaward in another thread (2nd post down) stating that the court retains jurisdiction in AZ after a granted MTC (per ARS 12-1502 ) to confirm the arbitrator's award. But does this apply when the plaintiff drops the case and the court dismisses it? My hunch is that it doesn't matter and the court matters are finished, though I could be wrong. Here is the thread referenced: https://www.creditinfocenter.com/community/topic/330238-arbitration-question-in-az-regarding-lawsuit-by-pra Thanks in advance for your replies and all of the help received thus far on this great forum!
