Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution or dispute settlement is the process of resolving disputes between parties. The term dispute resolution is sometimes used interchangeably with conflict resolution, although conflicts are more deep-rooted and lengthy than disputes. Dispute resolution techniques assist the resolution of antagonisms between parties that can include citizens and governments. Methods of dispute resolution include: lawsuits arbitration collaborative law mediation conciliation negotiation facilitation AvoidanceOne could theoretically include violence or war as part of this spectrum, but dispute resolution practitioners do not do so. Dispute resolution processes fall into two major types: Adjudicative processes, such as litigation or arbitration, in which a judge, jury or arbitrator determines the outcome. Consensual processes, such as collaborative law, conciliation, or negotiation, in which the parties attempt to reach agreement. Not all disputes those in which skilled intervention occurs, end in resolution.

Such intractable disputes form a special area in dispute resolution studies. Dispute resolution is an important requirement in international trade, including negotiation, mediation and litigation; the legal system provides resolutions for many different types of disputes. Some disputants will not reach agreement through a collaborative process; some disputes need the coercive power of the state to enforce a resolution. More many people want a professional advocate when they become involved in a dispute if the dispute involves perceived legal rights, legal wrongdoing, or threat of legal action against them; the most common form of judicial dispute resolution is litigation. Litigation is initiated. In the United States, litigation is facilitated by the government within federal and municipal courts; the proceedings are formal and are governed by rules, such as rules of evidence and procedure, which are established by the legislature. Outcomes are decided by an impartial judge and/or jury, based on the factual questions of the case and the application law.

The verdict of the court is binding, not advisory. Judicial dispute resolution is adversarial in nature, for example, involving antagonistic parties or opposing interests seeking an outcome most favorable to their position. Retired judges or private lawyers become arbitrators or mediators. In the United States, many states now have mediation or other ADR programs annexed to the courts, to facilitate settlement of lawsuits; some use the term dispute resolution to refer only to alternative dispute resolution, that is, extrajudicial processes such as arbitration, collaborative law, mediation used to resolve conflict and potential conflict between and among individuals, business entities, governmental agencies, states. ADR depends on agreement by the parties to use ADR processes, either before or after a dispute has arisen. ADR has experienced increasing acceptance and utilization because of a perception of greater flexibility, costs below those of traditional litigation, speedy resolution of disputes, among other perceived advantages.

However, some have criticized these methods as taking away the right to seek redress of grievances in the courts, suggesting that extrajudicial dispute resolution may not offer the fairest way for parties not in an equal bargaining relationship, for example in a dispute between a consumer and a large corporation. In addition, in some circumstances and other ADR processes may become as expensive as litigation or more so.

Established as a spin-off of Showcase, the channel aired action-adventure-oriented films and television series, though channel drift due to changes with the action-adventure genre overall saw it carry reality television content with little relation to the intended format; the channel was launched on September 7, 2001 and relaunched under its final name on August 31, 2009. The channel was shut down and replaced by Adult Swim on April 1, 2019 at midnight Eastern Time.

In 2011, Action would begin airing two original programs, The Drunk and On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour and Kenny Hotz's Triumph of the Will, both of which were cancelled after one season. By this time, Action's programming would begin to diverge and incorporate reality shows acquired from U. S. network TruTV.
