CorpCast Episode 6: A Brief Introduction to the Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act

On May 2, 2015, the Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act (the “DRAA”) became effective.  The DRAA is the second attempt by the State of Delaware to create a state-sponsored voluntary arbitration process.  In Episode 6, we sit down with Joe Slights, a former judge with the Delaware Superior Court, to discuss Delaware’s prior attempt to create a state-sponsored arbitration process, what happened to that scheme, and how the DRAA differs from the prior statute.  We’ll also talk about how the DRAA addresses some of the problems present in private arbitration rules and procedures, as well as other benefits of the DRAA to parties seeking an alternative forum to resolve their disputes.

Morris James will be hosting a complimentary webinar on the Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act on June 24th, 2015 at 12:00 noon EDT.
