On May 20, the American Arbitration Association will present the next installment in its ongoing series of legal update webinars. Presented by AAA General Counsel Eric R. Tuchmann and attorney/arbitrator/mediator Theodore K. Cheng, the Developments in Arbitration LawTesting the Boundaries of Court Intervention webinar will explore some of the issues that can create tensions when parties seek to have courts intervene in the arbitration process.

 

The period of time and the circumstances in which a court may become involved in an arbitration depend on a number of factors. Many courts have clearly delineated the limited role courts play in the arbitration process. However, certain issues arise with greater frequency that test the boundaries of the courts’ role. The outcomes of some of these challenges can have significant consequences for an arbitration proceeding or the enforceability of an award.

When it comes to dispositive motions, certainly a claim made in arbitration could be just as suitable for disposition without a full evidentiary hearing as a claim made in civil court. Such motions may be beneficial from both a time and cost standpoint. But are dispositive motions allowed at all? By what authority? Must the arbitrator entertain them? When? What are the standards for determination? What should advocates consider in deciding whether to file such a motion? 

 

In this 90-minute webinar, advocates will learn their best chances of prevailing on dispositive motions, including when to ask permission to file and when not to. Arbitrators will learn best practices to identify when such motions should be encouraged, and when permission should not be granted.

Technology related evidence is often presented in a variety of arbitrated disputes, particularly in such complex areas as construction, patent, oil/gas, and research and development. The evidence might be at the core of the dispute, or underlying other disputed issues. It is critical for arbitrators, even those having technical backgrounds, to appreciate the relevance of the technical evidence presented with regard to the issues in dispute.

 

In this 60-minute webinar, a panel of experienced arbitrators from various practice areas will discuss ideas that arbitration advocates and arbitrators can use to refine their presentation and arbitration process management skills. Advocates will learn from the arbitrator’s perspective ways to improve their presentation of technical evidence and information more clearly and persuasively. Arbitrators will learn how to guide advocates into making clear and persuasive presentations of technical evidence and information.
