Alternative Dispute Resolution Program

The Yolo County Superior Court currently offers Alternative Dispute Resolution  ("ADR") for all applicable civil cases. At the civil case management conference (CMC) election of an ADR process is discussed and encouraged. The court's goal is to make civil litigation more effective by reducing the delay in bringing difficult cases to trial, more efficient by reducing the cost to the public and the litigants, and to be more responsive to everyone's desire to resolve disputes early and fully.
