Arbitrator Selection Process

How it Works

It is the responsibility of all counsel (including self-represented parties) in the action to confer and agree upon the names of at least three arbitrators prior to submitting the names. Litigants shall utilize the online submission form available below to submit the agreed upon names. Names MUST be submitted in order of preference. Only one party shall complete the submission form.

If parties fail to select and submit the names of the preferred Arbitrators by the selection date indicated on the Court’s Minute Order, an Arbitrator will be appointed by the Court. Once the Court appoints the Arbitrator, the Court will mail a Notice of Appointment of Arbitrator to all parties.

A list of the Court approved Arbitrators may be found at the following link: Arbitrator Panel.
