RE: Rule 5, N.D.R.App.P., Post-Judgment Mediation
The Clerk of the Supreme Court has requested that Rule 5 be amended to make it clear that parties are not eligible for court funded post-judgment mediation on judgments rendered by the Supreme Court. Staff worked with the Clerk's office on proposed amendments to Rule 5 that would make it clear that post-judgment mediation is available for judgments that are final and appealable to the Supreme Court. The proposed amendments are attached.
