That was pretty much expected, I'm afraid. 

They rarely lose.

The bright side, you now have a couple of more windows for negotiating a settlement.  One is now, until they pay the initial bill for the appeal.  The second will be after the hearing is scheduled but before they pay the bill. 

Best of luck to you.

Is there any info available here on how to go about filing my appeal?  According to the card member agreement I have 30 days but I'm not sure how that works in conjunction with the JAMS rules for appeals.

Received an email from the arb case manager (appointment of appeal panel letter, disclosures, fee schedules, etc.).  Anything specific I should be looking for here?  I do see in the disclosures that one of the appointed arbitrators has a credit card with the creditor in question and another one of the arbitrators has handled cases involving this creditor in the past.  Is that something I should be concerned with?  Is it good, bad, insignificant?

If the arbitrator has dealt with this OC before, it could be significant. 

But, you might not be able to find out what the arbitrator did, unless it is a former judge and a public case.

Just to update everyone here, I objected to the arbitrator who had an Amex card but my objection was denied.  Then the attorney for Amex received the bill for the appeal and objected to it and tried to make me pay all of it (or at the very least half of it).  I sent my reply to that and they ruled in my favor.

So the case manager sent an email indicating that the arb panel has requested that a conference call be held, which I assume means that the creditor has paid the invoice for the appeal.  What should I expect during this conference call and what is my strategy here?
