Abstract

"Business and the Law." Maine's Reference of Dispute Act allows a neutral, mutually-agreed-upon "referee" to serve as a binding arbitrator in lieu of a civil trial. Dissatisfied litigants may appeal the referee's ruling to the state's highest court. It is not clear whether arbitration undertaken outside the parameters of the Act can be appealed. Arbitration has advantages, but evidence discovery is limited and some arbitrators are prone to just split the difference between the litigants.
