Discovery issues - What are your thoughts?

In a case with frequent discovery issues, should an arbitrator or Tribunal schedule weekly status calls? Have you ever had a matter where one party (perhaps as a posturing techniques) provides notice that a court reporter will cover a status call? Should an arbitrator or Tribunal suggest that repeated threats to have a court reporter cover such status calls be discouraged and reconsidered because the arbitrator discourages guerrilla warfare for discovery issues?

If so, what were the considerations that convinced both sides to move their dispute to arbitration? Were they principally motivated by cost? By confidentiality? Was the court ill-suited to resolve the kind of dispute at issue?
