Detailed Arbitration Pleadings - What are your thoughts?


If a Claimant chooses to file a detailed pleading instead of simply submitting a Demand Form, to what extent should the Claimant be held to any deficiencies in that pleading? For example, if the Claimant pleads certain factual averments but, even if taken as true, they do not rise to the level of a claim, is that an appropriate basis for an arbitrator to dismiss the claim upon the Respondent's motion?
