California Senate Bill 1078 - What are your thoughts?


Last night Governor Brown vetoed California Senate Bill 1078, see the following link: 1078. The bill prohibits a California arbitrator from accepting an offer of employment in a future case involving a party or lawyer in a pending arbitration, without prior written consent. The bill also adds prohibitions and disclosure requirements relating to certain solicitations made by private arbitration companies.

Dispositive Motions - What are your thoughts?


In what percentage of your arbitrations do you find that dispositive motions are granted and to what extent do you find that AAA Commercial Rule 33 is helpful in allowing the Arbitrator to deny the filing of a dispositive motion, from a cost-efficiency perspective, where it is unlikely that such a motion will be granted?

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.

Is it beneficial to the ADR Community for Institutional ADR Providers to offer arbitrators and mediators the use of Chambers (separate legal facilities/office space) for private, lease-based use?
