In an actual Beis Din case these days, if someone is summoned to Beis Din, can the nitva (respondent) insist on using a different Beis Din than the plaintiff sent the hazmana (summons) from? Does either litigant have the right to insist on a Za.B.L.A (ad hoc court) even if the other party doesn't want a Za.B.L.A? (Za.B.L.A is an acronym for "zeh boreir lo echad -- this one pickes one [judge, and the other litigant picks one judge, and the two judges chose the third].) C.M. 13:1 seems to rule indeed either party can force a Za.B.L.A, but if a case came to an actual Beis Din today and the respondent insisted on a Za.B.L.A does the Beis Din have to accept that demand? [BTW, these are all theoretical questions not nogea to any specific case.]
Once a case goes to trial, does either litigant in a Beis Din case have the right to insist on "din" (and not peshara), even if the other party wishes to use peshara (compromise)? C.M 12:2 seems to indicate either litigant can force din and insist peshara not be used, but as a practical matter in a Beis Din case today is a party's insistence for din honored?
If the standard shtar berurin (binding arbitration agreement) says that the Dayanim can utilize peshara, can the party decline signing it unless it is modified to preclude any use of peshara? If the Beis Din that is handling a case insists on peshara, can a party to the case then decline to continue with that Beis Din?
