12 OK Stat § 12-1801 (2015) What's This?

The Legislature is aware of the fact that many disputes arise between citizens of this state which are of small social or economic magnitude and can be both costly and time consuming if resolved through a formal judicial proceeding. Many times such disputes can be resolved in a fair and equitable manner through less formal proceedings. Such proceedings can also help alleviate the backlog of cases which burden the judicial system in this state. It is therefore the purpose of this act to provide to all citizens of this state convenient access to dispute resolution proceedings which are fair, effective, inexpensive, and expeditious.

Sections 1 through 6 of this act shall be known and may be cited as the "Dispute Resolution Act".

Added by Laws 1983, c. 78, § 1, operative July 1, 1983.
