Mediation was covered in the last article. But, what about that other procedural step called: Arbitration? Arbitration may be either binding or non-binding. Binding arbitration, as the name implies, is indeed "binding" in the sense that it generally results in a final decision for a case.
Arbitration and mediation were covered in previous articles. But, for those with cases in El Dorado County (civil) Court, there is another form of Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR") called: Dispute Resolution Conference.
