To Whom It May Concern: I have been an attorney and Nasd/Finra arbitrator for over eight years.I have served on many arbitration panels.I believe the mandatory industry arbitrator is unfair to investors, and makes the whole arbitration system appear biased.I have observed many industry arbitrators who are biased against investors and claimants.I strongly request that the SEC remove the mandatory industry arbitrator.Respectfully submitted,James graven.
