Doesn't this process undercut the work of the courts?
Answer: The Rapid Rulings process emphasizes the rule of law established by courts and legislators because it applies that law. The Rapid Rulings process is confidential, so it will not be developing caselaw that might be different from that of the courts. Outcomes should be similar to those in a court, making a Rapid Ruling more predictable than the outcome of some other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
I don’t like the idea of filing a lawsuit against someone, but I don’t like being taken advantage of either. Is using Rapid Rulings filing a lawsuit?
Answer: No, Rapid Rulings does not involve a lawsuit. It is a private process. If avoiding a lawsuit is your main concern, you may not have to file one if your adversary agrees to use the process. If your adversary declines your invitation to use Rapid Rulings, your only choice may be to file a lawsuit. But you can always move from a lawsuit to Rapid Rulings. Information on how to move from court to Rapid Rulings is here.
Will courts be concerned about disputes being resolved outside of court?
Answer: Courts generally encourage alternative dispute resolution, and some even order it be attempted before a trial can occur. Courts are overburdened, and criminal cases are necessarily a higher priority than civil cases.
