Is Rapid Rulings Cheaper Than Court?
How do I know how much money I will spend in court versus what I will spend with Rapid Rulings?
Answer: There is no way to know how much you will spend in court. A lot depends on what the other party does. Will your adversary file motions that you will need to respond to? Will your adversary request lots of documents and depositions? What is the value of your time? How efficient is your attorney, and what is his/her hourly rate? All of these variables (and more) affect what you spend in court. Arbitration has similar variables in cost. With Rapid Rulings, you know how much you will pay to present or defend your case. If certainty about what you will spend is important to you, Rapid Rulings is a better choice.
Won't a mediator be cheaper?
Answer: Going to mediation is almost certain to be cheaper than court or arbitration proceedings. Typically, parties will submit a letter or brief to the mediator describing their evidence and their goals for the mediation. The cost of having an attorney prepare these papers is roughly the same as preparing a brief for Rapid Rulings. Then the mediator will charge by the hour to read the briefs and mediate the matter. This could be less, more, or equal to the "per page" cost of Rapid Rulings. If the case does not settle at mediation, though, you have just spent money without ending the case. With Rapid Rulings, a ruling will end the case within a short amount of time.
