Case Study I: Courts and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Camilla Brown suffered from Alzheimer’s, and was admitted to the Bay Pines Rehabilitation Center. Because of her mental condition, Brown’s son, Juan, completed the admissions paperwork and signed the admissions agreement. The admissions documents included a clause that required parties to submit any disputes for arbitration. When Camilla was released from the center four months later, she sued for negligent treatment and malpractice during her stay. Bay Pines moved to require arbitration.
- This is a claim of negligent care, not a breach of a commercial contract. Is it ethical for medical facilities to impose mandatory arbitration? Is there really any bargaining over such terms?
- Should a person with limited mental capacity be held to the arbitration clause agreed to by the next-of-kin who signed on behalf of that person?
Part II—Research Paper
To make the course relevant for each student, you are asked to select a legal topic covered during the course. A list of potential topics is located in the complete instructions document. Although you are not required to select one of the exact topics listed, you should select something closely related. Try to select a topic that reflects an issue that is related to a concern you have in your professional life.
Provide a short introduction to the topic. Provide some background about the topic selected and why it was selected. Include definitions, as necessary. Use more than one paragraph, if needed. You will refine the introduction and background information later in the course.
