The Michigan 14A District Court was one of the first courts in the nation to provide court-connected online dispute resolution (ODR). The court launched ODR for traffic cases in May of 2014. Since that time, the court has added ODR for other case types: warrants and pleas in 2017 and Driving While License Suspended tickets in Fall 2018.
Since 2014, members of the public have used the online platform to resolve over 3,000 tickets, warrants, and pleas online. The court has benefitted through reduced foot traffic, fewer hearings, faster collections, and staff time savings. The public has benefitted through increased access. The court has received very positive feedback on this program.
Judge Tabbey will share the experience of the court, the motivation for the ODR system, its history and outcomes. He will also share his perspective and lessons learned over time. Please join us for this informational session on ODR 2014-2019.
