Yesterday, Justice Sheila Sonenshine, Rick Derevan, and Jackie Hoar spoke to the OCBA Appellate Law Section on Appellate ADR.
Rick explained the factors an attorney should consider in deciding whether to participate in appellate mediation, and explained the process for getting a settlement conference at the 4/3. Jackie explained the process for getting a settlement conference at the 4/2. Justice Sonenshine described the role of a private neutral in appellate ADR and gave advice on making an effective presentation.
The section meeting -- out last at Jason's -- was well-attended and well-received. We'll see you at McCormick's next month for the annual State of the Court presentation.
