Put a case "on trial" in the court of public opinion.

  • Bring businesses, individuals, policies, or controversies to trial.
  • Find the best resolution as voted by the public.
  • Invite experts, mediators, consumer advocates, and others to comment on this case.
  • Crowdsource the best resolution to any dispute or controversy.

  • Give your trial a name:
    "Plaintiff v. Consolidated Timeshares, Inc."; "Should the Electoral College be Abolished?"
  • Provide an opening statement.
    Put your best foot foward in your opening statement. Make it easy to understand and not long or complex. It's your opportunity to sum up your grievance or purpose so that all who participate in the case will understand your side.
  • You can also add a dollar recovery amount as part of your suggested resolution (Optional)
  • Start this trial

How it works

  • Write an opening statement. State your purpose in bringing this matter to trial; tell what you're trying to achieve. If the case involves a counterparty, they will be requested to submit an opening statement also.
  • Decide whether to divide your trial into separate Issues. Complex cases can be broken into more than one issue to be considered. Use the control to organize your case in two or more issues. If you use this option, provide a brief description of each issue.
  • Trial participants — including advocates for each side, experts, neutrals, and others — add comments, ask questions, and offer resolution suggestions to resolve your case.
  • The public votes to choose the resolution that best resolves the case; you and the other party are presented with the results and decide if one or more of them offer an acceptable way to settle the case.
  • For general topics that don't involve a specific counterparty — e.g., public controversies — top-ranked solutions will remain published on the Internet and will continue to invite public comment and ranking.

Benefits of an online trial

  • Crowdsource public solutions and settlement to claims you may have against business, individuals, etc.
