                                       CIVIL SETTLEMENT CONFERENCES

Heide Keeble in Department 19 is the Coordinator for Settlement Conferences (707) 521-6602.

Settlement Conferences held on Monday and Thursday are in Departments 18/19 located at 3055 Cleveland Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA 95403.  Settlement Conferences held on Tuesday and Wednesday are in Departments 16/17 located at 3035 Cleveland Avenue, Suite 200, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. 

All Original Settlement Conference Statements are to be mailed or hand delivered directly to Department 19.  Parties/Counsel/Panelists are to check in with the Settlement Conference Coordinator in the judge's chambers for which their Settlement Conference is to take place.

The original Settlement Conference Statement must be lodged directly with the Settlement Conference Program Coordinator as listed above, five court days prior to the conference. Counsel is responsible for delivery of copies of the statement, directly to the Settlement Conference Panelists.  Failure to comply will result in sanctions being imposed or your Settlement Conference being taken off calendar without further notice.

 

 

                       In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Civil Settlement Conference Program is suspended until further notice.  No settlement conferences will be held at any court facility until further notice.  Counsel and self-represented litigants may choose another form of Alternative Dispute Resolution.  Selection of any other form of ADR will not allow for use of a court facility at this time.

                      It is unknown if settlement conferences scheduled during the period of the closure (March 16 through May 31, 2020), will be reset.

                      Please check this page again after June 30th for any possible further updates.  Thank you.
