Case Conclusion Date: 10.01.2012
Practice Area: Appeals
Outcome: Published Indiana Supreme Court Opinion.
Description: On behalf of the ADR Section and the Indiana Association of Mediators, we have argued that mediations are confidential and fall within an evidentiary exception of ADR Rule 2.11. We argued before the Indiana Supreme Court and the Indiana Supreme Court agreed with our position. Further, we requested that a task force review the ADR rules and determine what changes, if any, need to be made to the ADR rules, after no changes were made for approximately 20 years. As a result, a task force was created and has reviewed the rules and made the recommendations for various modifications and updates to the ADR rules. Please note that all dispositions of cases depend upon the facts and circumstances of each case.
