Going to court
If one wants to take someone to court in Israel. The defendant is a non religious company that will not listen to Beis Din. Is one obligating to go through Beis Din first in order to get a heter to go to a secular court or can one go straight to secular court?
If it is absolutely clear the second party will not agree to go to Beis Din it would be permissible to go straight to court. However being that it is hard for one to judge on his own when his own money is at stake, one should certainly be in touch with a qualified Dayan about his case before going to court.
