The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Office schedules the case and notifies all parties and attorneys in writing as to the date, time, and location of the session. Consideration will be given to parties' and attorneys' desired dates and times during the scheduling process.
If scheduling conflicts arise, however, the ADR Office will set the appointment. Once the session is scheduled, no unilateral canceling or rescheduling is permitted. If an appointment must be changed due to legal conflict, notice pursuant to Uniform Superior Court Rule 17.1 must be presented to the ADR Office.
Failure to Appear
If a party fails to appear at a duly noticed mediation session or fails to give 48 hours notice of cancellation, said party may be responsible for the mediator's fee, not to exceed $200.
