Timur Akpinar's answer Without seeing the conditions of the high court, it is difficult to say. There could possibly be issues here that require the guidance of an attorney familiar the law in India as it pertains to the court-appointed arbitrator.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas, but your question has remained unanswered for four weeks. I can’t speak specifically for Texas, but in general, many arbitrators and mediators tend to be attorneys. However, there are also non-attorney mediators and arbitrators who preside over disputes. It can depend on the region, certification requirements, and the rules of the entity administrating the arbitration. Non-attorney alternate dispute resolution professionals generally have specialized expertise in a...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer My best guess is that the hotel has the right to ask you to leave, if -- in their opinion -- you are disruptive and/or an annoyance to other hotel guests. If they do ask you to leave, they must return to you any unused rental payments you have made for your stay.
N. Munro Merrick's answer If this is a private mediation, outside the court system, the mediator should declare the mediation unsuccessful and give you a report to that effect. If there is a contract, it should specify the next step, usually arbitration. If no contract, you could file a suit in court.
J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer Mediators assist people who have difficulty reaching an agreement. The two of you have already agreed on everything, so you don't need a mediator. All you need is for a lawyer to shepherd your settlement through the legal system.
Timur Akpinar's answer It’s difficult to say without seeing the rules/guidelines of the arbitration and terms/conditions, if any, imposed by the high court. Arbitrations generally provide rules/guidelines that govern how they are to be conducted. In general, these could possibly include grounds for appeal.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer The cost of mediation is determined by many factors. First of all, if you are going to use an attorney to represent you, that will cost money. Also, the mediator's fees vary (usually from about $200 to $300 per hour). Rates vary widely to high priced mediators and less expensive mediators. The good news is that the parties split the costs of the mediation (not including attorney's fees if you have an attorney representing you). Don't judge a mediator by his fees. Some of the best...
Josephine Pesaresi Hallam's answer If I followed your question correctly, you’re wanting to know the possible punishments for class six felony in Arizona. A class six felony is the lowest level felony, but if your friend has priors it would be a higher punishment.
And if the phone he was committed while on parole release, it would increase the punishment significantly.
Many of the attorneys here on justia, offer free initial consultations, he should contact one to get a rundown of what his exposure is...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Hawaii but I noticed no one picked up your question in three weeks, and at this point, the issue could be moot. If the matter is still pending, it would be advisable for you to consult with an attorney in your area with experience in mediations. The type of mediation is not mentioned here, but mediations and arbitrations in general should have guidelines and rules that govern how they are to be conducted.
Terry Lynn Garrett's answer For civil court you need a trial attorney. For probate court you need a type of trial attorney called a fiduciary litigator. Contact your local bar association or lawyer referral service.
Trent Harris' answer It sounds like you have a possible breach of contract case. Your contract with Lowe's probably includes provisions about what to do in the event of a dispute. You will need to follow the contract, including any procedures for alternate dispute resolution. Because Lowe's is a big company and does a lot of business, their contract is probably pretty tight and covers most, if not all, the bases to protect Lowe's and its contractor. My advice would be to seek out an attorney to go over the contract...
Ethan White's answer Difficult to say without seeing the language of the clause. And courts have handled this differently, but you could file suit in Circuit Court if the company is waiving an arbitration clause.
Timur Akpinar's answer In terms of giving advice here, one couldn’t give any meaningful advice based on the facts at hand. What is known is that two parties entered into a contract for the construction of a building. While one party is unhappy, as described by the facts, an arbitration hearing will likely delve into issues that are more technical in nature, such as compliance with architect’s plans, specifications for materials, specifications for construction, schedules, penalties for delays, among other factors.
Timur Akpinar's answer In my experience in handling arbitrations in New York, I have not seen the term “mistrial” come up in this context. I’ve only seen the term arise in the context of formal court proceedings. I have seen arbitration forums list grounds for appeal (e.g. arbitrary or capricious conduct, as an example). These can vary according to the entities administering the arbitration, mediation, or other alternated dispute resolution forum.
