Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution

 

Effective January 1, 2018, Superior Court adopts a new Civil Rule of Procedure 16.1. This mandatory non-binding arbitration rule addresses previously identified issues. In this new rule, the lawyers are charged with meeting the deadlines and in running the arbitration process. See, e.g., Civil Rule 16.1(d)-(f). More importantly, the arbitration process does not interfere with the issuance of a case scheduling order. See Civil Rule 16.1(h).
