Abstract
SAC's summary of responses to the SEC's October 1987 survey of broker-dealers' use of pre-dispute arbitration clauses reveals, among other findings, significant differences in the firms' handling of cash and margin accounts in the early years of the burgeoning securities arbitration industry. This survey became well-known as the basis for the SEC staff's subsequent recommendations to consider legislative and regulatory action on pre-dispute clauses.
