Requesting ADR

To use ADR procedures, the parties must make a written joint request to the CBCA. Requests should be addressed to the Board's Chair and efiled. If the parties wish that a particular CBCA judge serve as their ADR Neutral, they should so state in their request to the Board's Chair. Depending on caseload and availability, a determination will be made by the Chair as to whether a requested judge will serve as the ADR Neutral. If the request does not specify a particular judge, one will be assigned. Prior to the start of the ADR proceedings, the parties may be required to sign a written ADR Agreement that establishes guidelines for implementing the ADR.
