Zoom ADR: Best Practices for Virtually Every Virtual ADR Event
Verrill, September 2020

As the post-COVID-19 “new normal” comes into focus, it is unlikely that civil jury trials will happen in many jurisdictions until at least the spring of 2021. For family law matters, cases involving children or domestic violence will typically take precedence over those that do not.

As a result, civil litigants and those going through a divorce, face a further delay of potentially six to eight months (if not more) before their matters are heard. In fact, there have been instances in which trial dates are being set a full year from now...

A federal statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1782, provides a way to accomplish that...
