Bank contracts for construction loan had a mandatory clause. No clause, no money. We signed contractural bank papers as did the contractor we were using to build our home. The contractor did not complete home in time frame he gave bank in his estimate. He breached and we had to get another contractor to finish. He slowed his work down, did not work full days or did not show up. The bank, which was his, told us we needed an attorney yet the friend of the contractor whho worked in the bank told him to make a bill out.

To settle we had to arbitrate and the bank had AAA as the arbitration to be used. We followed all time frames to pay money and submit our papers. The three way call was made before we got an attorney and the arbitrator did not listen to me when I objected the other attorneys choices.

We decided we must get an attorney to help after this. The AAA changed the Fast Track by using rues they said they had but are not on their website. The arbitrator was caught having a conversation with the other party and attorney and the arbitrator never acknowleged my entry into the hearing room nor did any explaination of the converstation be given.

From that point on I felt the arbitrator went from a business attitude to a personal attitude with the other party. The arbitrator rules against us even though we showed proof of contractural breach, contracural obligations and flaws in blueprints by subcontractors the general contractor was contracturally responsible for. We had witnesses, contractural papers he signed, video and still pictures of what he did not do, the blueprint requirements, a witness to his saying he quit and leaving and there were many lies he told that could be seen as a statement making no sense. We were held off and told we could not have a reason for the ruling. "It is expensive- The other party must agree because they pay part of the costs".

No justice is here and lies rule the hearing. Mandatory clauses for arbitration should be ruled illegal for taking our right to be heard by a jury of our peers as the Constitutional laws give us. This company did what they wanted and you can be damned as far as they are concerned.
