The report indicates that during the recertification process this year, 70% of the arbitrators on the panel indicated that more than 51% of their practice involves representing plaintiffs and 28% indicated that more than 51% of their practice involves doing defense work. Those statistics demonstrate there are far more plaintiff attorneys on the no-fault arbitration panel than defense attorneys. All members of MDLA who are qualified to serve as arbitrators are encouraged to apply to be added to the panel of arbitrators. To do so, you must be a licensed attorney with at least five (5) years practice in Minnesota and at least one-third of your practice must involve auto insurance claims or, for an attorney not actively representing clients, at least one-third of ADR practice must involve motor vehicle claims or no-fault matters. You must complete the attached Minnesota No-Fault Application.
