Arbitration is a private, confidential forum for resolving disputes outside the courtroom. It is similar to a court trial but less formal, less time-consuming and less expensive. Unlike court proceedings, arbitration is a confidential process not open to the public and the dispute is decided by a third-party arbitrator rather than a judge. However, arbitration is only available with the consent of the parties to the dispute. Many businesses put arbitration clauses in their standard customer contracts. Thus, more and more consumers are having their disputes resolved in a private arbitration forum. This news is not all bad for you. The same advantages businesses get in arbitration can work for you too. As a practical matter, you also benefit when your grievance can be resolved as fairly as in a court of law, but more quickly and cheaply.
