Parties requesting to set their matter, or convert a previously set matter, for Binding Settlement Conference (BSC), the parties must obtain approval from the assigned judicial officer or, if not already set for hearing, any Superior Court Judge.
In order to obtain such approval, the parties shall jointly contact Court Administration to obtain judicial approval. Parties shall provide an estimate of time needed for the actual BSC presentation. Parties shall also provide a listing of contested issues, as well as a proposed list of documentary evidence and any additional witnesses being proposed (i.e. experts or other witnesses besides the parties).
Once judicial approval has been obtained, the matter may be set or converted to a BSC.
