I find this troubling. While this might be analogized to the property dispute cases, in those situations the parties choose to seek a legal determination in the first instance. Here there was an exclusive opting in to the religious court. Is this as dangerous as I think?
Georgia Appeals Panel Reviews Rabbinical Court Ruling
Fulton County Daily Report
A Georgia talent agent has asked the Georgia Court of Appeals to reverse a ruling that an ancient rabbinical legal proceeding, a bet din, didn't follow state law. The lower court found that a bet din is a legitimate means of arbitration as long as it complies with Georgia law, but that, because there were no records kept, the proceeding used to resolve the agent's dispute with his client violated the client's rights.
