Jonathon C. Fox speaker at Illinois Mandatory Arbitration Presentation

Jonathon C. Fox gave a presentation about Illinois Mandatory Arbitration for the Rock Island County Bar Association on Friday, October 28, 2011. The presentation was based on the Illinois Supreme Court Rules dictating civil claims for amounts between $10,000 and $50,000 must go to mandatory arbitration before a trial may occur. Mr. Fox focused on some of the sanctions available to the court for bad faith arbitration, what courts have considered bad faith arbitration, and whether a party to a lawsuit is required to appear at the arbitration hearing.
