How does DRD define case conclusions?

  • Awarded – cases concluded by (i) a monetary Award to one or more parties; (ii) a non-monetary Award to one or more parties (including declaratory, specific performance, injunctive); or (iii) a combined monetary and non-monetary Award.
  • Settled / Withdrawn – the dispute resolved by agreement of the parties, with or without the assistance of the arbitrator, resulting in a settlement agreement (which may or may not be recorded in a Consent Award) or the withdrawal of a claim or counterclaim.
  • Administrative Close – the termination of an arbitration by the institution for non-compliance with directions for payment.
  • Dismissed – the dismissal of a claim by an Award or Order of the tribunal without a final hearing on the merits, for (i) lack of jurisdiction; (ii) lack of legal merit; or (iii) failure to pursue a claim.
