Mediation and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Processes
From MN Bench Book - Trial Procedures & Practices for Judges
At any given hearing it is recommended that the Judge discuss the status of ADR. What type of ADR are the parties going to use? Who is going to conduct the ADR? When is the ADR going to take place? Is the Court going to be involved in the ADR process? The parties should have adequate answers to these questions at an early stage in the litigation process. (See Civil Cover Sheet Above). Note also the potential for a discounted ADR process in Hennepin County.
