What happens after the arbitration hearing?
At the conclusion of the hearing, the panel will deliberate and complete the Award of Arbitrators. The award must be agreed upon by a majority (2) of the panel members, with a dissenting signature line available on the award form. A party may wait for the results, or phone the Arbitration Center for the results. The award will then be filed with the respective Office of the Circuit Clerk. The Circuit Clerk will mail the Award of Arbitrators and a Notice of Award to all parties. The Notice of Award will provide the next court date for the case. On that status date, if no rejection is filed, a party must move for entry of judgment on the award or enter a dismissal order. If a rejection has been filed, the Court will set the case for trial.
