FINRA's Arbitration Awards database enables users to perform Web-based searches for FINRA and historical NASD arbitration awards free of charge, seven days a week. Also available through the site are historical awards for New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board. Users may search for awards by case number, document text, date of award (by date range), or a combination of document text and date of award. Awards can be viewed online, printed, or downloaded as text-searchable PDF files.
Some of the older awards, especially those with poor resolution, may have non-alphabetic characters appear in the 'extract text' of the search results. This occurs when the document is digitally read during the scanning process and is not reflective of the actual underlying award.
On rare occasions, a FINRA arbitration award is vacated by a court. We are not always made aware when this occurs. Where, however, we are given such notification and a copy of the order vacating an award, effective March 24, 2010, FINRA will post the order directly behind the original award that appears on this site.
