Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most civil trials have been delayed until the courts can safely open to the public. Once courts open for trials, dockets will likely be backlogged with criminal and civil cases that were scheduled for trial to begin during the pendency of the stay-at-home order. It could be months before a litigant’s civil case can be heard by a judge.  

Join us for a complimentary webinar with former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Eve Lundberg Stratton, former Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Jim McMonagle, and Vorys Partner Alycia Broz discussing efficient and economical ADR methods such as mediation and use of a retired judge to preside over your trial during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The presenters will discuss:

  • An often underutilized ADR method of the use of a private judge under Ohio Revised Code 2701.10;
  • Remote mediation services under Ohio's Uniform Mediation Act;
  • ADR tools and strategies; and
  • Why this is important right now.
