New York County Lawyers Association Committee on Arbitration and ADR Comments on Success of ADR Program in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York Offer Encouragement to Users of ADR and Suggest Action by Corporate Counsel

The ADR Committee found that the EDNY ADR programs, with a greater than 50% settlement rate, necessarily reduced the time and cost involved in those cases and were received by parties to those cases with greater satisfaction than were cases outside the ADR program. The ADR Committee observed that parties and their counsel not only found the ADR processes and the neutral to be fair and appropriate for their case but also were happy in general with ADR and recommended that the program be continued.
