The Fairness in Nursing Home Arbitration Act of 2009 is anything but "Fair" Presented on behalf of the nursing home industry in Tennessee to Congressman Steve Cohen May 8, 2009
Congress enacted the Federal Arbitration Act in 1925 and arbitration is endorsed by the U.S. Supreme Court as an effective and fair alternative dispute resolution process. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Â§ 1 et seq., and similar state arbitration acts encourage the use of arbitration instead of litigation as an antidote to the "costliness and delays of litigation." The courts have recognized the potential benefits of arbitration over litigation. See, e.g., Allied-Bruce Terminix Cos. v. Dobson, 513 U.S. 265, 280 (1995).
