Discovery Arbitrator Pilot

FINRA Dispute Resolution is discontinuing its Discovery Arbitrator Pilot Program. Effective January 1, 2010, the procedures under the pilot will no longer apply, unless the parties stipulate to their use under Rule 12105 of the Customer Code or Rule 13105 of the Industry Code.

The Discovery Guide and the rules addressing discovery under FINRA’s Codes of Arbitration Procedure will continue to govern discovery issues in arbitration claims.
