Arbitration: Selecting Arbitrators; Arbitral Immunity

Chapter Summary


ABSTRACT TEXT:

Arbitration is a process of dispute resolution in which a neutral third party, known as an arbitrator, renders a decision after a hearing at which both parties have had an opportunity to be heard. If arbitration cannot proceed because the agreed method for appointment of an arbitrator has failed for any reason, unless the parties stipulate to another arbitrator, either party may petition for appointment of an arbitrator, and the court will appoint one. Also, individual arbitrators and sponsoring organization arbitrators have immunity for acts performed in their official capacity.

This chapter of California Points and Authorities contains memoranda and contentions relating to selecting arbitrators, as well as immunity from civil liability of arbitrators and sponsoring organizations under private agreements pursuant to Cal. Code Civ. Proc. § 1280 et seq. However, the chapter provides that arbitral immunity does not extend to breach of an agreement to conduct arbitration.

California Points and Authorities is the only California publication to provide forms that combine concise arguments of the law with accurate summaries of supporting statutes, cases, and rules. Easily adaptable for use in trial and appellate briefs and researching jury instructions, the forms are designed to assist the attorney in arguing points of law at all stages of litigation.
