RULE 2.1 TRANSFER TO ARBITRATION (a) Statement of Arbitrability. In every civil case the party filing the note for trial shall complete a statement of arbitrability substantially in the form attached to the civil rules. (b) Response to Statement of Arbitrability. Any party disagreeing with the statement of arbitrability shall serve and file a response to the statement of arbitrability with a copy of the statement of arbitrability and note for trial setting objected to within ten days of the service of the statement of arbitrability and note for trial setting. A copy of both the statement and response shall be furnished to the court administrator by the responding party at the time of filing so that an objection calendar may be prepared. In the absence of such a response, the statement of arbitrability shall be deemed correct, and a nonresponding party shall be deemed to have stipulated to arbitration if the statement of arbitrability provides that the case is arbitrable. Otherwise, the case will not be subject to arbitration except by stipulation of the parties or court order and will be set for trial on the trial calendar. (c) Failure to File--Amendments. A person failing to serve and file an original response within the times prescribed may later do so only upon leave of the court. A party may amend a statement of arbitrability or response at any time before assignment of an arbitrator thereafter only upon leave of the court for good cause shown. (d) By Stipulation. If all parties file a stipulation to arbitration under MAR 8.1 the case will be placed on the arbitration calendar regardless of the nature of the case or amount in controversy.
