The Use of ADR in Business Courts: program August 7, 2010 2:30-4:30 at ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco
"In preparation for next week’s Annual Meeting of the American Bar Association, I have been delighted to get to know a group of judges who will be offering a program on Saturday afternoon, August 7, on the use of ADR in Business Courts. One of them, Judge Steven I Platt of Maryland, maintains an interesting blog to which he has recently contributed a thoughtful article on the “why” of dispute resolution in business courts.
Judge Platt’s main premise is that business disputes need more than a resolution of the presenting conflict. They need some analysis of the reasons the conflict arose, and a correction of those underlying causes in order to prevent a recurrence of the same issue. That is, courts are being asked not just to rule on cases, but to help solve problems that give rise to cases."
