At times, parties is conflict chose to have a decision made by a third party, an arbitrator. The arbitration process is distinct from the mediation process. The neutral party, the arbitrator, makes a decision about the dispute, instead of facilitating the parties discussion and communication. All parties have the opportunity to present their side of the dispute. Arbitration is generally a binding process. The parties involved agree to abide by the arbitrators decision, even if they dislike it. CRC has a group of volunteers with Civil Arbitration training that is certified by the Minnesota Supreme Court under Rule 114.
