Mandatory Mediation Program

The Mandatory Mediation Plan is designed to provide quicker, less expensive, and potentially more satisfying alternatives to continuing litigation, without impairing the quality of justice or the right to trial.

Detailed information regarding the Mandatory Mediation Plan is accessible via the links below. We ask that parties familiarize themselves with these documents, along with the Case Management Order, so they are prepared to discuss the possibility of mediation at their Initial Pretrial Conference. Offering this program provides a valuable service to the public and we appreciate and look forward to your cooperation.
