Arbitration briefs are read before the hearing. Objections to offered exhibits are respected and addressed on merits, but include collaborative discussion of likely admissibility at trial. Arbitrations begin with a brief explanation to litigations about the process and purpose. Issues not in dispute are identified. The process and decision are intended to be an abbreviated and less formal reflection of what is likely to occur at trial

The litigants participate in the ADR process with the expectation and hope that the matter can be resolved. I believe it is an important part of the process and prospect for pretrial resolution that the litigants believe they have had a fair hearing by an impartial third party at the arbitration, so that the chances of resolution, whether based on the arbitration decision or in subsequent negotiations, are as good as possible
