e-Court costs incorporate a "refundable" escrow for purposes of verdict enforcement

The escrow relates to a prepaid fee equal to lawyer/counsel appeal fees and is payable by both parties.

Enforcement of a decision by the e-Court arbitrator can be encouraged in all states outside the state of Louisiana by awarding the "winning" party, the 'loosing' party's prepaid portion of the escrow amount. This applies only when the 'loosing' party, whilst firstly agreeing to abide by the e-Court litigation process does not honor the judgement of the e-Court arbitrator either with regards the standard or appeal procedures, making enforcing not possible. Moreover, the prepaid escrow portion by the "winning" party, will be returned to the 'winning' party at the same time of the e-Court decision with regards the standard or appeal procedures. The escrow money received by the 'winning' party will be used to pay for council costs incurred by the "winning" party to litigate in e-court and/or a traditional government courts. In the unlikely event that there exist a claim and counter claim between parties and enforcing the decision by an e-Court arbitrator is not possible then the prepaid escrow amounts will be used to pay for council fees of both parties to litigate in a traditional government court.

Enforcement of a decision by the e-Court arbitrator with respect to a defendant residing in Louisiana can be legally enforced through a specially designed notarial deed based on the Louisiana civil code.

Arbitration in the United States

source : Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arbitration, in the context of United States law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution specifically, a legal alternative to litigation whereby the parties to a dispute agree to submit their respective positions (through agreement or hearing) to a neutral third party (the arbitrator(s) or arbiter(s)) for resolution. In practice arbitration is generally used as a substitute for judicial systems, particularly when the judicial processes are viewed as too slow, expensive or biased. Arbitration is also used by communities which lack formal law, as a substitute for formal law.

Arbitration may also serve a distinct purpose: as an alternative to strikes and lockouts as a means of resolving labor disputes. Labor arbitration comes in two varieties: interest arbitration, which provides a method for resolving disputes about the terms to be included in a new contract when the parties are unable to agree, and grievance arbitration, which provides a method for resolving disputes over the interpretation and application of a collective bargaining agreement.

Species of Arbitration

Commercial and other forms of contract arbitration

Agreements to arbitrate were not enforceable at common law, though once the parties had actually submitted a pending dispute to an arbitrator, the arbitrator's judgment was usually enforceable. The reasoning for this was that the power of the arbitrator arose solely from the mutual consent of the parties to his jurisdiction; but by the time a dispute reached the point that one party wished to take it to an arbitrator, the other often preferred to take their chances in court instead. Thus, without the consent of both parties to his jurisdiction, the arbitrator lacked the power to decide the case.

During the Industrial Revolution, large corporations became increasingly opposed to this policy. They argued that too many valuable business relationships were being destroyed through years of expensive adversarial litigation, in courts whose rules differed significantly from the informal norms and conventions of businesspeople (the private law of commerce, or jus merchant). Arbitration was promoted as being faster, less adversarial, and cheaper.
