Annotation: Against the background of the court congestion problem, the article suggests a National Private Court to handle landlord-tenant disputes that now require excessive outlays of time and money from all parties.
Abstract: Since the landlord-tenant relationship usually arises out of contract, the National Private Court, or a similar judicial mechanism, could be used for resolution of most types of civil disputes in the absence of prohibitory statutes or case law. Speedy evictions, speedy judgments for unpaid rent, and National Private Court appearances by telephone conference calls should encourage many landlords and their counsels to use this type of solution to their disputes. The advantages of having recourse to the National Private Court, where costs and inconvenience to all parties involved are minimal, would be a remedy to many present tenant-landlord litigation problems. Landlords, tenants, and their attorneys should be persuaded to take their cases to the National Private Court system, whose workings and advantages, as well as planned extension throughout the United States and Canada, are described in detqil in this article. Footnotes are provided in the text.
