The Legality Of The Rulings  

Although eCourt is offering to resolve disputes to give impartial verdicts eCourt does not profess to be the law, or even a substitute for the law.  All our verdicts are totally independent rulings based solely on logic and a sense of fair play, according to the merit of the case submitted.

However, if each party agrees to abide by the decision of eCourt before application, it will carry substantial standing in the eyes of the law.  Furthermore, if eCourt is successful in negotiating a satisfactory resolution between the parties, then it can be committed to writing with the assistance of legal counsel, and then signed by the two parties, at which time it becomes a legally binding contract and falls under contract law.

If you would like to seek legal counsel to make the agreement legally binding, you may do so at any time. This can be done before the verdict is reached or after and it can be done with your own legal counsel, or eCourt can supply you one.  Just e-mail us at or visit

Although eCourt has no official powers to call forth witnesses, it does allow for witness testament to be admissible as evidence if it is of merit and could help the dispute towards a fairer resolution. This will count as billable text, though, and should be included when calculating any cost.

eCourt does not seek to take away the right of any individual to seek redress in the courts, and does not wish to imply that extrajudicial dispute resolution is always the easiest, fairest, quickest, or most economical way for parties that are not in an equal bargaining relationship to proceed.  For instance, a disgruntled consumer, battling a large corporation, may often find that a strong letter and support from a Governmental consumer watchdog may well prove effective.

eCourt has no intention of seeking to replace any of these useful resources but ascertains that many dispute resolutions can be carried out extremely effectively by making full use of modern technologies like the internet and sees on-line Dispute Resolution as a growing field of conciliation.  

We do not aspire to detract from the law or any other due process, eCourt would like to see itself, not just as an effective alternative, but as a bold and valuable new addition.
