Synopsis By: Marx - Proceeding Author: Ben Rathbun

A witty, engaging and constructive article addresses Academy members directly, stating, “This is no time for smugness” and that, in the Academy, “There are manifestations of an Elect mentality.” The author offers the wisdom of dispute resolvers such as John Dunlop, William Usery, and Sam Kagel. Warning is given of increasing court intervention in arbitration awards, particularly where failure to provide due process is perceived. The Academy is urged to advocate the “practical case” against “undue judicial intervention.”
