Settlement

Prior to the Final Pretrial Conference, at the request of counsel of record, the Court is amenable to scheduling a settlement conference. The Court routinely becomes involved in the settlement of jury cases but not non-jury cases. Trial counsel must be present at the settlement conference, as well as the client, with full authority to engage in settlement negotiations.
