Facilitation/Case Evaluation

The Court encourages the parties to resolve matters through a facilitator of the parties’ choosing. If the parties cannot agree on a facilitator, the Court will select one, if jointly requested to do so by the parties.

The Court may refer matters to case evaluation pursuant to E.D. Mich. LR 16.3 on its own motion or if the parties stipulate, so long as case evaluation will not interfere with any deadlines imposed by the Court in its scheduling order.
