LR 8. ALTERNATE DISPUTE RESOLUTION The court may order mediation or a settlement conference in any case or category of cases. The trial judge should not preside at settlement conferences. At the request of the parties, commissioners and visiting judges can be scheduled for settlement conferences. Upon agreement, the parties may use the Okanogan County Dispute Resolution Center, visiting judges, commissioners and others for mediation and settlement negotiations. The procedure established in the local rules for mandatory arbitration is available in other cases upon agreement of the parties. The court administrator will provide all possible assistance in arranging alternate dispute resolution.
