SETTLEMENT WEEK! The next Settlement Week is scheduled for Monday, June 1 2015 through Friday, June 5 2015. During Settlement Week no arbitration hearings are scheduled so that parties and attorneys are free to work on case settlements. Forthright makes DRPs available to act as mediators at no cost to users. Since Settlement Week mediation is voluntarily, both parties must consent to have their case mediated. Please begin preparing a list of your cases which may be suitable settlement candidates. You may request a DRP mediator by sending your request and list of cases to the Settlement Week coordinator, Robert Maiorana, at

Of course, attorneys and parties may engage in settlement activity without a DRP mediator. Forthright provides a free online settlement tool – SettlementIQ™ - which facilitates settlements of single or multiple cases. Just click on the SettlementIQ logo on your portal dashboard. You can build settlement proposals which are sent to your adversary with the click of a button!
