Abstract:     
This article summarizes the discussions and recommendations of the Committee on Compulsory Arbitration in the Superior Court of Arizona that form the basis of proposed changes to the Arbitration Rules and the authorizing statute. The proposed changes include increasing the maximum jurisdictional limit for arbitration, increasing arbitrator compensation and permitting CLE credit for arbitrator service, and altering some aspects of the process and associated deadlines to enhance efficiency. In addition, the committee proposed requiring wholly dispositive motions to be decided by the trial judge instead of the arbitrator and expanding the evidence admissible at arbitration hearings beyond that permitted by the Rules of Evidence. The article also explains the reasons behind the Committee's decision to retain other aspects of the arbitration system.
