A: In California, you can look up past rulings and decisions made by arbitrators through various legal databases and resources. Services like Westlaw, LexisNexis, or even public records from the American Arbitration Association can be useful for this purpose. These platforms often provide detailed information about previous arbitration awards, including the names of the arbitrators and the outcomes of the cases.

When looking for arbitrators who have ruled against Kaiser Permanente, you can search for arbitration awards involving Kaiser specifically. This can help you identify patterns or specific arbitrators who have made decisions in favor of plaintiffs against Kaiser. Such information can guide your selection process by providing insights into the arbitrators' track records.

Additionally, it may be helpful to consult with legal professionals who have experience with Kaiser arbitration cases. They can provide practical insights and potentially access to records or databases that are not readily available to the public. This approach ensures you are making an informed decision based on comprehensive and relevant data.

A: It could depend on the forum (American Arbitration Association, etc) and whether the case was published. Not all arbitration decisions are published. As my colleague advises, a good starting point could be legal databases and any bulletins or reporters published by the arbitration forum. Good luck
