LRMA 1.1. PURPOSE OF RULES - OTHER RULES - DEFINITIONS (a) Purpose and Scope. The purpose of these Local Rules for Mandatory Arbitration is to supplement the Mandatory Arbitration Rules (MAR) adopted by the Supreme Court in order to provide a simplified, economical procedure for the prompt and equitable resolution of disputes involving claims of $50,000 or less. THESE RULES MUST BE READ AND APPLIED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE MANDATORY ARBITRATION RULES. These rules are not intended to address every question which may arise during arbitration, and thus leave considerable discretion to the arbitrator. Arbitrators should liberally employ such discretion in order to assure that hearings are informal and expeditious, consistent with the purposes of the statutes and rules. (b) Administrator. As used in these rules, "Administrator" means the employee of the Grant County Superior Court who may, from time to time, be assigned by the judges thereof the position and responsibilities of Arbitration Administrator. [Amended 1990; amended effective September 1, 2012]
