In response to state-imposed budget cuts, the Los Angeles Superior Court will cease providing ADR services effective March 11, 2013. ADR Services will stop accepting referrals to the Party Select and Random Select (Pro Bono) Panels and for arbitrations, mediations, neutral evaluations, and voluntary settlement conferences from civil, family, and probate courtrooms.
How to proceed:
If the Court has referred you to ADR and you have not submitted an intake form, you will not be able to complete the process through the Court’s ADR.
If you submitted an intake form and received a Notice of Assignment of Neutral, but have not yet scheduled your ADR hearing date, immediately contact the neutral assigned to your case. Any ADR process must be held on or before May 10, 2013.
If you submitted an intake form, but have not yet received a Notice of Assignment of Neutral, immediately contact the ADR office to which you sent the intake form.
If you received a Notice of Hearing, indicating the location of the hearing is at one of the courthouses listed below, the reservation will be honored through May 10, 2013.
If you received a Notice of Hearing, indicating a hearing date beyond May 10, 2013, you will be contacted with further information.
Between April 1, 2013, and April 30, 2013:
ADR will close its offices located in the following courthouses: Antelope Valley, Beverly Hills, Compton, El Monte, Inglewood, Long Beach, Norwalk, and San Pedro. For further information, click to view Notice to Attorneys re ADR Closure 3-11-13.
