Professor Shestowsky Comments for Daily Journal on JAMS Lawsuit

Professor Donna Shestowsky commented for the Daily Journal on a lawsuit filed against alternative dispute resolution provider JAMS accusing the company of falsely representing the qualifications of one of its neutrals.

"A case like this could have significant consequences for any major provider of ADR services as well as small providers," said Shestowsky. "It raises the issue of how important it is for litigants to know about the background information of their neutrals. Being able to rely on that information is certainly a big issue."

Donna Shestowsky, who has both a law degree and a PhD in Psychology, is a Professor of Law and Martin Luther King, Jr. Research Scholar at UC Davis School of Law, where she teaches Criminal Law, Negotiation Strategy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and a seminar in Legal Psychology.  She was the 2007 recipient of the Law School's Distinguished Teaching Award.
