Risks of “Baseball Arbitration” in Resolving Real Estate Disputes

“Baseball arbitration” refers to the process used in Major League Baseball in which if an eligible player’s representative and the club ownership cannot reach a compensation agreement through negotiation, each party enters a final submission and during a formal hearing each side — player and management — presents its case and then the designated panel of arbitrators chooses one of the salary bids with no other result being allowed. This method has become increasingly popular even beyond the sport of baseball.
