The Office of ADR Programs offers two alternative dispute resolution processes to parties with pending litigation in the Court.
Mediation Parties work with one or more impartial mediators who assist the parties in reaching their own voluntary agreement for complete or partial resolution of the issues on appeal, in addition to any other issues relevant to the underlying dispute between the parties.
Pre-Hearing Conference Parties work with an incumbent or retired Court of Special Appeals judge to discuss the contents of the record and/or record extract, pending pre-hearing motions, scheduling matters related to the appeal, consolidation of appeals, and any other issue aimed at streamlining the appellate process.
