Online Dispute Resolution in Ohio (cont’d)/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on February 16, 2020


A blog was published here on February 11, 2019 on the ODR program in Ohio. This program allows the parties in a dispute to utilize resources established by the court in a virtual setting. Recently, feedback was published from participants in this program. 91% of the participants stated that they would recommend this program to others involved in disputed controversies of a legal nature. A more positive reaction was elicited relative to the question of which was more preferable: Using an ODR program or going to Court. 94% of the respondents stated that they would prefer the use of an ODR program. What is surprising to me is that 5% of those responding did in fact prefer the option to go to Court! Mediate don’t litigate.
