Series 1: Knock Knock- ADR Driving Innovation in US Housing Disputes with Alec Chapa (Video/ Podcast)

YouTube Link 

Podcast Link

I was privileged to engage in a stimulating and thought-provoking podcast with Alec Chapa on Expert Views on ADR (EVA) Vid / Podcast Show. Alec is committed to helping groups of people work together more collaboratively, transparently, and effectively. An accomplished mediator, conflict resolution practitioner, and published researcher, he has worked with employers, business owners, landlords and tenants, HR leaders, and nonprofits to prevent and solve legal problems, support collaborative decision-making, and constructively resolve conflicts before they turn into expensive lawsuits.

He wears many hats, so I left the link to his profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alec-chap…

In this episode, we offered a detailed analysis of ADR and its relevance in addressing housing disputes in the US. We examined the interconnectedness between ADR and housing-related issues, assessing its suitability and exploring the extent of housing dispute backlogs in the US. Also, we discussed the potential of ADR in alleviating these backlogs in the US courts. Dr Chinwe shared an excerpt from an article on the City and County of San Francisco Government page, underscoring ‘How ADR can be used to settle Housing issues outside the rent ordinance and those that fall under the Rent Ordinance.’ This prompted a discussion about the practical application of this law and its potential applicability in other parts of the US, with Alec providing a comprehensive overview of its implementation in some states.

Against this backdrop, we outlined the step-by-step process for parties to initiate a housing settlement via ADR while scrutinising the eligibility of landlords and tenants to utilise ADR for dispute resolution. Finally, Alec provided a comprehensive analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of employing ADR to address housing disputes or conflicts and highlighted the necessity for more collaboration among ADR organisations/sections to improve public awareness of the above subject matter.

The Intersection of Technology and ADR: AAA-ICDR’s Bold Move in Acquiring the World’s Leading ODR Company

What a day to be alive! As I was preparing my slides for my presentation titled ‘Arbitral Institutes: The Efficacy Cybersecurity and Diversity in Comparison to Litigation.’ I received a LinkedIn notification. Initially, I was inclined to ignore it, but then I decided to click on it, Voilà!
‘The American Arbitration Association (AAA)-International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) on the 30th May 2024- today in New York acquired the World’s Leading ODR Company, Inc. and its parent company, Resourceful Internet Solutions Inc. (RIS), which owns Mediate.com, Arbitrate.com, and several other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) websites.’
According to Rule, Fowler, and Melamed, “this move bolsters the AAA-ICDR’s mission to expand innovative alternative dispute resolution options to benefit businesses, communities and practitioners worldwide.”
Against this backdrop, I believe that the above move is a major factor that distinguishes the AAA-ICDR from the traditional court and the other arbitral institutes/institutions. It is imperative to state that the ICDR is an international division or branch of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the leading arbitral institution in the US, with considerable experience in administering US domestic arbitrations and international disputes through its ICDR body. They have consistently embraced technology to improve the efficacy of the arbitration process, thereby paving the way for more people to opt for it.
Kudos AAA-ICDR!!!

Arbitral Institutes: The Efficacy of Cybersecurity and Diversity in Comparison to Litigation

The process of arbitration in the modern-day context is extolled in terms of relevance to resolving disputes between various entities of a diverse nature. Its relevance has developed due to various parties seeking a more convenient and less complicated alternative to arriving at a conclusion mutually agreeable to everybody. Questions have been asked as to its simplicity, particularly its affordability, in light of the rising cost of the litigation process. It is worthwhile exploring how relevant the process of arbitration is to various entities involved in discord. The paper explores the intricacies of the arbitration process, looking at its procedures, features, elements, advantages and challenges. By examining these intricacies, it is possible to determine if there is any significant role the practice of arbitration has to play in international commercial transactions. If one is to understand the affordability of the arbitration process, one has to understand how it works.

ACR-GNY’s 2024 Annual Conference is presented by our 365 Sponsors, ADR Notable and Columbia University Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.

Housing Disputes in the US: Can ADR Help? Analysing Sarah Garrett Case with Son -Dwydell 

During my time in Hamtramck, Michigan, I had the privilege of meeting Dwydell Garrett, the son of Sarah Sims Garrett. He shared with me the details of this landmark case that spanned over five decades, from 1968 to 2024 -the case of Sarah Sims Garrett et al. v City of Hamtramck.
 The case has far-reaching implications for housing disputes in the US and demonstrates the resilience of the Garrett family and others involved in the class action. It also prompts the question of whether appropriate/alternative dispute resolution (ADR) via mediation could have expedited the case’s resolution.
