Under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, arbitrators are selected by having each side strike (remove) any unacceptable arbitrators from a list of usually between eight to twelve randomly selected names from the AAA list of Arbitrators. These names come from a list of approved arbitrators with expertise in various fields (consumer disputes, employment, etc). Potential arbitrators who are in some way interested in the outcome; e.g. friends of either party or having a financial interest in the outcome of the dispute, are ineligible.
