Adjudicative-Claims Arbitration Law and Legal Definition

Adjudicative-claims arbitration refers to an arbitration that is designed to resolve matters usually handled by courts, in contrast to arbitration of labor issues, international trade, and other fields traditionally associated with arbitration. Generally, under adjudicative-claims arbitration, tort claims are handled through a judicial procedure. Adjudicative-claims arbitration resorts to traditional court based litigation process.[ Wallen v. Florida Dep't of Professional Regulation, Div. of Real Estate, 568 So. 2d 975 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 3d Dist. 1990)]
