I have no desire to mediate my ED case. I am listed as the defendant and would prefer that it just be heard before a judge and settled.
My husband’s attorney said he would object to any waiver of mediation. What does he have to gain by forcing this case to go to mediation, instead of just allowing a judge to review the evidence and make a ruling?
Can you tell me how I would request a judicial settlement conference in lieu of mediation?
Also, since I live out of state how can I avoid unnecessary trips for pre-trial conferences that have the sole purpose of scheduling yet another conference?
