LETTER OF ARBITRATION
The Manorial Courts are Houses Romanov and Pitt's civil dispute resolution service. Instead of using the civil courts, plaintiffs and tortfeasors can use this arbitration service to resolve their private disagreements. For instance, breach of commercial contracts, family disputes and landlord and tenant disagreements.
Meeting at a neutral location, or across the internet, parties voluntarily agree to solve their problems by coming to a mutual solution. In this way, justice is solving problems by balancing excesses and deficiencies rather than vague notions of winning.
Firstly, parties will submit a letter of arbitration. This includes the parties' names, email addresses and facts of the case. After the parties' letters have been received, a date will be set to allow the judge and the parties to prepare their arguments. On the day, the judge will facilitate the resolution, outline the agenda and highlight the topics of dispute. The parties will then be given 15 minutes to present their case before they negotiate the topics of dispute until they agree to a mutually beneficial solution. Where this fails, the judge will rule a solution most in line with the natural law. When the negotiation has ended, the judge will summarise the agreement between the parties. When the judge has approved the solution, the decision will be binding.
After cases have been heard and decided, the judge will publish a copy of the case summary for the plaintiff and the tortfeasor, as well as for the Year Books: a published volume of cases used to set precedent in other Manorial Courts.
The Manorial Courts will use Aristotelean natural law as the foundation for its judgements; followed by English statute law, then equity law and then common law.
The Manorial Courts grant right of appeal to the Courts of Customs. Focusing on disputes in interpretation, the Courts of Customs follow the structure of Manorial negotiations. In the extremest cases, the Courts of Customs will grant right of appeal to the Curia Regis of Houses Romanov and Pitt.
Until the ruling, a party is able to end the negotiations and seek remedy in the civil courts.
The Manorial Courts are open to subjects of Houses Romanov and Pitt in addition to the general public.
Depending on the complexity of the case, the court will charge between £200 and £500 per applicant.
Arbitration continues to be a popular alternative to the civil courts. It is cheap, time efficient and fabulously effective. When shall we hear your case?
To begin proceedings, fill in the letter.
