Wisconsin's Court-Ordered Adr Law: Potential For Resolving Libel Disputes, Michael E. Weinzierl

Journal of Dispute Resolution

This Article argues that the Wisconsin Judicial Council's court-ordered ADR plan, which was adopted by the Wisconsin Supreme Court in December of 1993," will benefit libel litigants by giving them an alternative to the courtroom battle.

The Article also analyzes other proposed alternatives to libel litigation and evaluates their effectiveness. The Article examines the efficiency and effectiveness of Florida's dispute resolution program, which provides settlement options similar to those ...

Reversal Arbitration Board: An Adr Model For Resolving Intra-Corporate Disputes, The, Rene Stemple Ellis, Geetha Ravindra, Neil Vidmar, Thomas Davis

Journal of Dispute Resolution

In this article, we describe the development and implementation of an innovative Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program that uses neutral adjudicators to minimize lawsuits between Toyota Motor Sales, USA and its automobile dealerships. The Toyota Reversal Arbitration Board [hereinafterRAB] has several distinguishing characteristics. First, while many forms of ADR seek to shift the focus of disputes away from formal rules, the Toyota RAB was specifically designed to convey and enforce organizational rules. Second, an aspect of organizational decision making is entrusted to neutral, outside adjudicators trained as specialists in the rules and the context out of which disputes arise. Third ...


Divergent Strategies: Union Organizing And Alternative Dispute Resolution, Theodore J. St. Antoine Jan 1994

Divergent Strategies: Union Organizing And Alternative Dispute Resolution, Theodore J. St. Antoine

Articles

The Commission on the Future of Worker-Management Relations, the so-called "Dunlop Commission," is focusing on three principal subjects: (1) union organizing, (2) worker participation in management decision making, and (3) alternative dispute resolution (ADR). I am going to concentrate on the last, but first I would like to say a few words about union organizing. After all, unionization and collective bargaining - and for that matter, worker participation as well - can fairly be viewed as special forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Faculty Scholarship

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the Association of American Law Schools presented a program, at the 1994 AALS Conference, on the institutionalization of mediation – through courtconnected programs and otherwise. The topic is an important one, because this phenomenon has become increasingly common in recent years. Moreover, the topic seemed especially appropriate for the 1994 program, since Florida – the host state for the conference – was one of the first states to adopt a comprehensive statute providing for court-ordered mediation (at the trial judge's option) in civil disputes of all kinds. The move toward institutionalizing mediation has raised many questions ...
