Question of representation


#1

SENT EX AND HIS ATTY DEMAND FOR MEDIATION NO RESPONSE SENT THEM BOTH CERTIFIED DEMAND FOR BINDING ARBITRATION NO RESPONSE…WOULD AN ATTORNEY STILL REPRESENTING THEIR CLIENT JUST NOT RESPOND TO A DEMAND FOR ARBITRATION…WHAT WOULD BE THE PURPOSE OR STRATEGY FOR THE ATTORNEY TO DO THAT?


#2

Certainly if they are no longer representing him, then they will not respond. If they are still in the case, then I cannot say what their strategy would be by not responding to you. Perhaps they would just rather the case go to litigation and have a trial before a judge.


#3

That is what I THOUGHT. Since I am representing myself I would rather have settled as SA requires with binding arbitration. With unincorporated SA can I still get this into binding arbitration by filing a breach of contract or does this seem headed to court? Is there something specific I can file in court to start the action to head to binding arbitration?


#4

Yes, it seems as though your best option is to file a breach of contract action if the SA requires binding arbitration and your demands for such are going unanswered. The remedy will be specific performance of the contract.
