Ethical Dilemmas Or Benign Neglect, Richard A. Salem Jan 1994

Ethical Dilemmas Or Benign Neglect, Richard A. Salem

Journal of Dispute Resolution

But, the real message of this study is that guidance for mediators facing ethical dilemmas is long past due. The Florida mediators, as might have been anticipated, are encountering a number of ethical problems that are familiar to mediators elsewhere and that are endemic to practicing in this field. But, as Professor Bush suggests, the interviews indicate that some of the problems confronting Florida mediators result from their being placed in the untenable position of not being provided with: (1) sufficient policy and procedural guidelines; or (2) training to competently mediate cases being referred to them.


Ethics: No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy: Bush's Contribution To Mediation Practice, Albie M. Davis Jan 1994

Ethics: No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy: Bush's Contribution To Mediation Practice, Albie M. Davis

Journal of Dispute Resolution

The beauty of Robert Baruch Bush's research on ethics is that his conclusions grow out of the real life experiences of mediators.' Yes, his interpretation is influenced by his own biases, and yes, the Florida mediation scene, where he made his observations, is not a microcosm of the rest of the nation or the world; nevertheless, in spite of these limitations, he did a remarkable job of capturing the dilemmas that most mediators face.


Easier Said Than Done: Resolving Ethical Dilemmas In Policy And Practice, Linda Stamato Jan 1994

Easier Said Than Done: Resolving Ethical Dilemmas In Policy And Practice, Linda Stamato

Journal of Dispute Resolution

This is not to argue against core principles. There is, I think, a consensus on these: responsible and fair dealing, disclosure of personal conflicts, good faith, diligence, impartiality, confidentiality, and, certainly, honesty and integrity. I take these ethical requirements to be the sine qua non of professional mediation practice; the primary representations to be made prior to, and, indeed, to be adhered to in the course of mediation. SPIDR attempted to codify these values in its Ethical Standards of Professional Responsibility, which were adopted by the SPIDR Board in 1986 and confirmed in 1991. What we in mediation practice are ...

Constitutionality Of The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act: State Sovereignty And Compulsory Negotiations - Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe V. South Dakota, The, Joel P. Brous

Journal of Dispute Resolution

Indian tribes located within states that permit gambling are allowed to license and operate gaming activities on Indian lands2 as long as these activities comply with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act [hereinafter IGRA]. 3 Congress enacted the IGRA to balance tribal autonomy and economic self-sufficiency with the state police power seeking to control tribal gaming operations.4 In Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe v. South Dakota, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit addressed the constitutionality of the IGRA and held that the IGRA violated neither the Eleventh nor the Tenth Amendments.' This Note examines the split of ...

Emergency Medical Treatment Statute: A Federal How To On Avoiding Mandatory Arbitration Of Medical Malpractice Claims - Brooks V. Maryland Hospital, Inc., The, Karen E. Martin

Journal of Dispute Resolution

To combat the explosion of medical malpractice claims, some states have made arbitration a mandatory prerequisite to filing medical malpractice suits. These states hope that mandatory arbitration will decrease the number of claims and lessen the impact of medical malpractice suits. The federal government has created an obstacle to this effort in the form of the emergency medical treatment statute. This federal statute regulates emergency room care, but courts have been hesitant to call it a medical malpractice statute. As a result of the ambiguity in the federal statute, claimants are able to avoid state-mandated arbitration, thereby circumventing the goals ...


Finding The Parameters: The Scope Of Arbitration Agreements In Medical Service Contracts In California - Pietrelli V. Peacock, Mark Riley Kroeker Jan 1994

Finding The Parameters: The Scope Of Arbitration Agreements In Medical Service Contracts In California - Pietrelli V. Peacock, Mark Riley Kroeker

Journal of Dispute Resolution

There is perhaps no better indicator of the general perception of "crisis" in the American medical system than the lavish attention given President Clinton's health care reform initiatives in the media.2 In the 1970s, the frequency of medical malpractice claims and the cost of malpractice insurance, two sources of this perceived crisis, came into sharp focus.3 Experiencing a decline in profits as a result of increased malpractice litigation, many insurers began refusing to provide coverage or demanding high premium increases.4 This created a problem in malpractice insurance availability to health care providers.5 Health care providers ...

Michigan's Binding Summary Jury Trial: Reward Or Punishment - Farleigh V. Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1251, Thomas G. Glick

Journal of Dispute Resolution

In 1988, the Michigan Supreme Court added the summary jury trial to its arsenal of settlement devices available to trial judges.' Unfortunately, the summary jury trial employed in Farleigh v. Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1251 failed to meet its goal, and no settlement was reached by the parties.6 Nevertheless, the Michigan Court of Appeals chose to enforce the summary jury verdict,7 thereby drawing into question not only the ability of the summary jury trial to meet the preliminary goal of promoting settlement, but also the larger goal of the accomplishment of justice

The Obligation To Negotiate In International Law: Rules And Realities, Martin A. Rogoff Jan 1994

The Obligation To Negotiate In International Law: Rules And Realities, Martin A. Rogoff

Michigan Journal of International Law

Considered in this article is the important question of whether the obligation to negotiate imposes an affirmative obligation on a state to seek actively negotiations with the other interested state or states before it can legally engage in certain activities, or whether the obligation to negotiate simply requires the state subject to the obligation to respond favorably when asked by the other state or states to enter into negotiations.


Comparative Analysis Of Labor Mediation Using A Bargaining Strength Model, Alvin L. Goldman Jan 1994

Comparative Analysis Of Labor Mediation Using A Bargaining Strength Model, Alvin L. Goldman

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

The comparison of different legal systems offers a number of analytical and research advantages, one of which is that it provides a laboratory for observing differences and similarities in the ways in which common regulatory and dispute resolution models operate in similar and dissimilar environments. This Essay uses that laboratory to illustrate how the bargaining strength model presented in Settling for More: Mastering Negotiation Strategies and Techniques can be applied in analyzing mediatory interventions and provide a better understanding of (a) how such interventions can be utilized most effectively, (b) when they are useful, (c) when they are superfluous, and ...


Flames On The Wires: Mediating From An Electronic Cottage, Ian Macduff Jan 1994

Flames On The Wires: Mediating From An Electronic Cottage, Ian Macduff

Research Collection School Of Law

This article reflects on a curiosity of modern life, in that it is a very preliminary comment on a kind of mediation that does not involve me moving beyond the desk where my computer is located. It is a mediator's parallel to armchair travelling, with the difference here being that the experience is not vicarious, though it is certainly remote.


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.

What Happens When Mediation Is Institutionalized?: To The Parties, Practitioners And Host Institutions, Sharon Press

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 court-connected programs and otherwise. The topic is an important one, because this phenomenon has become increasingly common. 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, and the program ...

Rosemary Rayfuse

The World Bank Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes entered into force in 1965. An international dispute settlement system which is of great and growing importance, its reports have been published haphazardly in various periodicals, but are presented in these volumes in consolidated form for the first time, together with materials related to the ICSID cases from national courts around the world. All the decisions are presented in English with summaries, and are translated from other languages where necessary. This second volume contains materials relating to proceedings from 1983 to 1991, and is fully indexed.
