FORTY AMENDMENTS TO RF ARBITRATION PROCEDURES TAKE EFFECT JULY 1, 2016
The principal change is the mandatory claims and court order procedures in the arbitration process.
It would seem there is nothing new in the mandatory claims procedure. However, quite often even though the claimant files a claim, the defendant still invokes failure to comply with the claims procedure.
Please read about it:
Most civic cases in general jurisdiction courts are handled in the line of the court order procedure. Changes were introduced to the Arbitration Procedures in this respect on June 1, 2016.
To be prepared, please read about it:
Simplified court hearing. The scope of cases that courts can handle in a simplified manner, i.e. without a court hearing, was widened.
Special court rulings are back in the Arbitration Procedures now. Courts of arbitration may demand that state authorities rectify violations that were revealed in the course of the handling of the case. For example, the court may serve a special ruling if a state authority fails to provide requested documents. Though non-compliance with such court ruling will not entail major fines, it may affect the service record of officials involved.
