LMAR 3.2 Authority of Arbitrator In addition to the authority given to arbitrators under MAR 3.2, an arbitrator has authority to require a party or attorney advising such party, or both, to pay the reasonable expenses, including attorney's fees, caused by the failure of such party or attorney, or both, to obey an order of the arbitrator unless the arbitrator finds that the failure was substantially justified, or that other circumstances make an award of expenses unjust. The arbitrator shall make a special award for such expenses and shall file such award with the Clerk of the Court, with proof of service on each party. The aggrieved party shall have ten (10) days thereafter to appeal the award of such expense in accordance with the procedures described in RCW 2.24.050. If within ten (10) days after the award is filed no party appeals, a judgment shall be entered in a manner described under MAR 6.3. [Amended effective September 1, 2012.]
