Must Front-Load Experts in Arbitration Cases

Cosper v. Mora, et. al., 228 Ariz. 555, P.3d (2012)

Arizona Supreme Court vacated a published Court of Appeals opinion and held that under the arbitration rules, parties are not entitled to new disclosures after the appeal from arbitration is filed unless there is good cause and a court order. The parties are no longer permitted to disclose new experts during the “80 day” period unless there is good cause.
