Assume that a statute in your state required that all civil lawsuits involving damages of less than $50,000 be arbitrated. ?

Such a case can be tried in a court only if a party is dissatisfied with the arbitrator's decision. The statute also provides that if a trial does not result in an improvement of more than ten percent in the position of the party who demanded the trial, the party must pay the entire cost of the arbitration proceeding. Does this state statute violate litigants' rights of access to the courts and trial by jury? Why or why not?

    Generally there are two constitutional tests: the state constitution and the federal constitution. You fail to state the state.
