Review Exhibit 2.1: Typical State Court System.
Assume that the higher on this chart the case is the more expensive it is for all parties.
Write a memo on a state (not federal) level business dispute that could reasonably arise in your workplace. Your boss wants to know how a case like the one you have chosen would be processed throughout the various legal phases in a state court system. She wants this information succinctly, preferably in short, clear bullet points.
Because most cases never make it to trial, it is also important to consider alternative methods of dispute resolution. Suppose your selected case was initially submitted to ADR. Which of the available ADR methods do you think would be the most appropriate? Why?
- Discuss the differences in risks and benefits of going through traditional litigation and pursuing ADR in this case (Consider operational, financial and strategic risks, both positive and negative in outcome).
- Use no more than 500 words.
- Format the title page and reference page according to APA guidelines.
