Executive Director Tom Scott was quoted in a article on Legalnewsline.com titled, Justice Moreno: Arbitration Becoming 'Judicialized.' Scott pointed out that arbitration takes pressure off the state's overloaded civil docket. Here is what he had to say:
"The point of arbitration is to resolve legal issues outside of the courtroom in an effort to avoid the time and expense involved in the court process. It's often faster and fairer and saves time, money and stress for everyone involved," Scott said. "The biggest critics of arbitration are often the personal injury bar, because it eliminates their chances at walking away with millions in attorney fees."
