Local Mandatory Arbitration Rule 8.3 EFFECTIVE DATE Contingent upon funding by the county legislative authority, these rules, as amended, become effective on the first day of January 1997, subject to amendment thereafter. With respect to civil cases pending on that date, if the case has not at that time received a trial date, or if the trial date has been set for later than the first day of April, 1997, any party may serve and file a statement of arbitrability indicating that the case is subject to mandatory arbitration in accordance with the provisions of LMAR 2.1 (a). If, within 10 court days, no party files a response indicating that the case is not subject to arbitration in accordance with the provisions of LMAR 2.1 (b), the case will be transferred to the arbitration calendar. A case set for trial earlier than the first day of April, 1997, will be transferred to arbitration only by stipulation of all parties. [Adopted Effective September 1, 1996, September 1, 2003]
