Subject: File No. SR-FINRA-2010-053

I recently filed a FINRA claim and was shocked to learn that one of the arbitrators hearing my case was a member of the securities industry. I question whether I can get a fair hearing as a result of the composition of the panel. For that reason I urge the adoption of SR-FINRA-2010-053.
