Arbitration with JAMS

Recommended Posts

@fisthardcheese @BV80@BackFromTheDebt@alwayswinning36If the other party did not pay the arbitration fee and JAMS closed the arbitration case and send a closure email to the parties, how do I file that in court to dismiss the case with prejudice: Pls I need the process step by step pls? Thanks so much to all the great people here dedicating their time (money) to help us all out.

Did the court order arbitration?

If so, write up a motion for sanctions against the plaintiff for violating the court order to arbitrate.  Include the evidence from JAMS. 
 

Include a proposed order for the judge to sign to dismiss the case with prejudice. 
 

Print out at least 3 copies.  Save a copy for yourself, file a copy with the court, and mail a copy to the opposing attorney CMRRR.

I am not 100% (I am not an attorney), but I would imagine you would write it up as a motion to dismiss, then state the facts just as you would any other filing. Cite that the debt buyer did not fulfill its obligations/duties/rights under the court order for arbitration and you are seeking for dismissal with prejudice. The proposed order will say something to the affect of ORDER OF DISMISSAL, and state on such and such date came to be heard this matter and the court orders this case to be _dismissed with prejudice or _dismissed without prejudice. And then have a spot for the Judge to sign the order.

Thanks; I will see how I will format this to suit my case; thanks so much. I searched some other places and the suggestions are many : motion to dismiss for failure to arbitrate; asking the court to hold them in contempt for failing to carry out the judge's order to arbitrate; constitute an unfair trade practice under the local unfair competition law. these are from attorneys.

I don't know about the unfair trade practices.  This doesn't need to be very complicated.  Simply make a motion titled Defendant's Motion to Dismiss With Prejudice and Sanction Plaintiff.  In the motion I would recap everything leading up to this point, such as Plaintiff filed the complaint on XX date, Defendant filed a Motion to Compel Arbitration on XX date, The Court Granted Defendant's motion to compel arbitraiton on XX date and ordered that [whatever was said about filing arbitration].  State that Defendant filed the arbitration case with JAMS (include a copy of your JAMS demand file), state that JAMS required Plaintiff to complete their portion of the filing by XX date, and that Plaintiff failed to comply with JAMS (include a copy of all emails from JAMS).  State that JAMS closed their file due to non response from the plaintiff on XX date, and as such, the Plaintiff is in direct violation of This Court's order to arbitrate this matter.  in your prayer for relief, I would ask that The Court grant defendant's motion to dismiss with prejudice and any and other such sanctions that the Court deem proper.

That's all you need.

In fact, if it were me, I would type up my motion and before I file with the court, I would email a copy to the attorney and say that I intend to file this motion, but as a courtesy I will hold off filing for [3 days or 5 days or what you feel is reasonable] and give your client a chance to accept my settlement offer of a mutual dismissal with prejudice.  It kind of gives the attorney a chance to save face and not be embarrassed in court by a showing he failed to comply with a court order and saves you the hassle of another potential court hearing as well.  I would say there is a fairly good chance that they accept the last second settlement offer.  But it is up to you if you want to do this prior to filing the motion or not.
