Private courts like these are legal. A similar things is "Judge Judy" in the US. Both parties agree that their complaint will be heard by a private judge, and agree to abide by the decision (indeed, are legally bound to (with Judge Judy, damages are limited to $5000)).
Jewish courts have existed in the UK for a while.
Remember, both parties must agree to go to a private court, otherwise a public court decides. (An issue might be if people are pressured to go to a private court under duress (similarly, it is up to the individual whether they want to wear a headscarf, but people can be pressured to do so).

At 14:03 into the recording of Richard Dawkins speaking, there is a glitch. Does anyone else have this problem?
