Community Chat – Mediation/arbitration option for temporary hearings not heard by courts right now
Mediation/Arbitration Options for Temporary Hearings Not Heard by Courts Right Now.
An interactive online discussion facilitated by Tanja Manrique.
Last week a group of ADR providers began discussions and ultimately began designing a pilot program to assist the District Courts, parties, and lawyers gain access to temporary relief in light of the case restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Remote Expedited Temporary Relief (“RETR”) program is intended to assist represented parties who are in need temporary relief to allow the parties an opportunity to navigate this health crisis with a temporary Order in place. This program seeks to provide families expedited temporary relief in a truncated, binding form of ADR. The Program Description and Order of appointment for RETR will be discussed during our Community Chat on April 10.
