The AAA administers class arbitrations for cases where the underlying agreement specifies that disputes arising out of the parties’ agreement should be resolved by arbitration and  the agreement is silent with respect to class claims, consolidation, or joinder of claims.

Effective 2010: The AAA will retain a portion of the administrative filing fee if a party files a demand for arbitration that is incomplete or otherwise does not meet the filing requirements contained in the Rules, and if the deficiency cannot be corrected in a reasonable period of time.
