Judges Roundtable on Court Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)


The 2018 annual meeting of the ADR Section will feature a distinguished panel of local judges from the 17th Circuit Court: the Honorable Kathleen A. Feeney, the Honorable David M. Murkowski and the Honorable Christopher P. Yates with ADR Clerk Barbara Martinski and moderator Robert Wright.


After a brief business meeting to install Terry Linn as our new Section Chair and pick a new chair-elect to follow him, the panel will tell us what is working well, what could be improved and address questions from the audience such as:


Ø  How is the Court’s mediation program working?


Ø  How are settlement rates trending for case evaluation and mediation?


Ø  How can litigators and mediators assist the Court?


Ø  How can judges assist litigants and mediators? E.g., would it be helpful to include provisions in orders referring cases to mediation:


o   Addressing division of mediator’s fees in multi-party cases?


o   Making plaintiffs responsible for initiating a conference call with the mediator?


o   Requiring payment of mediator fees by parties AND attorneys as courts do for court reporters?
