Q: Can an arbitrator deny a witness

2 Answers | Asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law for Michigan on
Answered on Apr 18, 2019
Timur Akpinar's answer
Yes. Although arbitrators can follow the same rules of civil procedure and evidence observed in federal or state court, they generally have more leeway, based on the size and scope of the matter. The guidelines they follow generally tend to be less formal than traditional court rules. This is as a general matter. A Wisconsin attorney familiar with the particular arbitration forum could offer more specific guidance.
