Alternative Dispute Resolution

Posted in funny law, judgments and transcripts at 7:50 am by thelawthoughts

Writing my Civil Procedure exam notes, which deal extensively with alternative dispute resolution, means I am in a frame of mind to be receptive to quirky methods that do not involve the words mediation, negotiation or arbitration.

Having said that, this case is not what I had in mind. Evidently, two lawyers who could not agree on the venue for a hearing were ordered by the court to play rock, paper scissors to determine the outcome. Yes, by court order. This is a binding order which in punishable by contempt of court proceedings.

It makes one ask the question, 'why can't they just figure it out?'
