Administrative Office of the Courts
Notice about Online Dispute Resolution
Starting July 1, 2021, the Judiciary is pausing referrals to Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) for newly filed debt and money due cases as well as landlord-tenant actions involving the collection of money due. These case types will proceed in court according to applicable rules of civil procedures. Cases previously referred to ODR will continue in the program until the end of their online negotiation period. The pause on new case referrals will remain in effect until further notice. The Judiciary plans to conduct an intensive evaluation of the online program and upgrade the application, including to increase accessibility.
