Utilizing the Mandatory Settlement Conference
||Thursday August 20, 2020
Hon. Robert McGuiness
Alameda County Superior Court
Commissioner Pro Tem, San Francisco Superior Court
Bledsoe Diestel Treppa and Crane
Many Superior Courts require parties to attend Mandatory Settlement Conference in the month or week leading up to trial. For many who were unsuccessful in private mediation, the MSC can feel like going through the motions on the way to trial. Settlement Conference Judge McGuiness of Alameda County and Pro Tem Pang Ly of San Francisco County give their perspective on how best to utilize the MSC process, how things have changed during COVID-19, and when an MSC may not be the best option.
- Settlement Conference judge and pro tem’s recommendation to prepare for MSC
- Common mistakes and pitfalls that impede settlement
- MSCs in the time of COVID-19
- When a case isn’t well-suited for MSC
