ADR IN THE TENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT

          The Tenth Judicial District ADR Program began on November 6, 1994 serving only the Western Circuit (Athens-Clarke and Oconee counties).  The Northern Circuit (Elbert, Franklin, Hart, Madison, and Oglethorpe counties) joined in 1997 and the Alcovy Circuit (Newton and Walton counties) joined in 2000.  The program serves the Superior , State, Magistrate, and Probate Courts of all nine counties.

Cases are referred to mediation by order of the assigned Judge, by recommendation of the program director/program coordinator or at the request of the parties (or their attorney).

Trained, registered mediators contract with the program to conduct the mediation sessions. ­­­­­­ In Superior, State and Probate cases, mediators are compensated by the parties participating in dispute resolution.  Mediation services are free to parties in Magistrate Court cases.

An average success rate of 68 - 70% greatly reduces the need for civil jury or bench trials in these courts.
