JAMS Has Optional Appeal Procedure

Everyone thinks of JAMS for mediation or arbitration. JAMS also has a procedure where you can appeal from an arbitration award. This is an internal procedure. The appellate standard is as follows:

 “The Appeal Panel will apply the same standard of review that the first-level appellate court in the jurisdiction would apply to an appeal from the trial court decision. The Appeal Panel will respect the evidentiary standard set forth in Rule 22(d) of the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules. The Panel may affirm, reverse or modify an Award.”

 The entire Optional Appeal Procedure may be found at the JAMS website; click here.
