The phone conference will be conducted by either the court's Director of ADR Programs, ADR Program Counsel or Deputy ADR Program Counsel, the biographies for whom are listed below. You are having this phone conference because you indicated on your Notice of Need for ADR Phone Conference either that you have not reached an agreement to an ADR process or you have tentatively agreed to a settlement conference before a magistrate judge. Purpose The purpose of the conference is to give you information to enable you and your client to select or design an ADR process most likely to benefit your particular case. The court offers the following ADR options: < < < Arbitration (non-binding or binding) Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) Mediation In only a limited number of cases that would most benefit from the option, the court also offers an Early Settlement Conference with a Magistrate Judge. If this is the option you prefer, during the ADR phone conference you will discuss your reasons for this preference and consider whether a different ADR process may be better suited for this case. If, after the ADR phone conference, you still prefer the option of an Early Settlement Conference with a Magistrate Judge, ADR Program legal staff member conducting the call may make a recommendation to the judge regarding the case's suitability for this option. The assigned judge will then decide whether to refer the case to an Early Settlement Conference with a Magistrate Judge. Additionally, with the court's approval, you may substitute a private ADR procedure for a court program. Participants (See ADR L.R. 3-5(f)(1)) Counsel who will be primarily responsible for handling the trial of the matter shall participate in the conference.
