 Summary Analysis

  • 'Early Resolutions' are those cases resolving, with or without mediation, by:
      1. Evaluation for settlement early with either minimal or no formal discovery;
      2. Informal cooperative exchanges of evidence or legal analysis; or
      3. Working cooperatively to expedite an early ruling on potentially dispositive cases.
  • Not all cases are appropriate for early or informal resolution because of their voluntary nature, important legal principals must be clarified, or state interests vindicated.
  • The OFM early resolution goal is to maintain their program at 25%.  The AGO early resolution participation target range is 20-30% of all cases involving a payout.
