In light of COVID-19, please note that for MAP mediations held on or before June 15, 2020, the MAP attendance requirements are modified as follows:
In lieu of all in person mediation appearances, all individuals required to participate in mediation (including the mediator, counsel, clients, representatives, adjusters, etc.) shall instead appear by telephone, videoconference, facetime, skype or other live and interactive means. All individuals shall participate in the mediation for the entire duration, as opposed to just counsel being available to receive an occasional call from the mediator.
For mediations during this time frame, also note that no pre-approval for attendance modification is required from the MAP Director or from the mediating Judge.
Please direct any questions you may have to the MAP office at 816-512-5080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
