Each party appointed a lawyer before the JDR trial. Counsel for each of the parties then issued a certificate of independent counsel. Ms. Khattab`s lawyer confirmed that Ms. Khattab executed the agreement “of her own will and without fear, threat, coercion or influence of other parties or any other person.” A settlement agreement was reached between the three parties and the terms of the settlement agreement were listed in the court minutes before the JDR judge. No consent decision or consent decision has ever been signed. (a) an agreement drawn up by the parties and any other document necessary for the implementation of the agreement, no, a decision taken in a BJDR is final and binding.

While it is generally cheaper for the parties to reach an agreement through negotiations, this is not always possible, in which case these options may be attractive to alternatives in court. The rules of the Alberta Court of Justice require parties to the trial, with a few exceptions, to attempt, in a private capacity or as provided for in the court system, an alternative dispute resolution procedure before requesting a trial date.
