ADR/Mediation/Case Evaluation

The court welcomes and endorses agreements between parties to engage in alternative dispute resolution. Upon joint request of the parties, the court will usually refer a case for evaluation, to either a state tribunal or to a Magistrate Judge for mediation, after the completion of discovery. The court will also facilitate pretrial resolution in appropriate cases.
