The purpose of Mandatory Arbitration is to reduce court congestion, expedite the litigation process, and to provide a cost effective resolution of civil claims. In Washington, most of the superior courts have adopted a program known as “mandatory arbitration.” Arbitration is another way to resolve a case instead of going to trial. With arbitration, the court appoints an “arbitrator” who will decide the case by listening to testimony, reviewing evidence, and then issuing an award. The arbitrator is usually an experienced attorney or retired judge.
