Jason Rose Publishes Article on Ex Parte Arbitration in Texas Lawyer

HOUSTON (July 9, 2018) —  Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC attorney Jason A. Rose recently authored an article for Texas Lawyer titled “Ex Parte Arbitration: An Idiosyncratic and Unfair Default Rule.”

In the article, Rose explores the scenario when one side fails to participate in an arbitration, known as an ex parte proceeding. He points out that a claimant could lose an arbitration without the respondent even making an appearance and that the current default rule makes arbitration more expensive than court.

“There is a dichotomy between the judicial system and arbitration’s treatment of a party in default,” writes Rose. “On the one hand, the court’s approach is efficient and expeditious. On the other hand, the impractical approach of arbitral forums is unduly burdensome, needlessly lengthy and superfluous.”

Rose is an attorney in Lightfoot’s Houston office. He practices general civil litigation with an emphasis in insurance defense litigation, representing policyholders of several multinational insurance companies. Rose has represented numerous clients in mediation and arbitration, and manages litigation dockets in the areas of construction defects, auto accident liability, premises liability, first party insurance claims, products liability, contracts, personal injury, employment law, consumer law and toxic torts.
