Mandataory Mediation
Pilot Program Launched

The Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of New York County began an 18-month pilot program on July 28th which requires every fifth case to be sent to mandatory mediation. The parties are to agree on a mediator, but if they cannot, the court coordinator will name three mediators and the parties are to agree on one of the three or rank them for the coordinator to compute the preferred mediator. The first mediation session is to be held within 30 days from the selection of the mediator and the mediation is to be concluded in 45 days, with limited extensions.
