I believe the broad scope of cases that came before the Court of Appeals has given me unique experience and perspective."
The American Arbitration Association is also pleased to welcome Judge Kaye to its Board of Directors where she will assist in the governance of the not-for-profit, the world's largest dispute resolution service provider.
