The 2013 ABA Spring Forum on alternative dispute resolution in Washington D.C. will feature Hon. Stuart Nudelman, (Ret.), senior mediator and arbitrator with ADR Systems. The meeting kicks off on Wednesday, April 24th, with the National ADR Forum, an all-day CLE program with a keynote luncheon address by renowned mediator Kenneth Feinberg and panels of nationally recognized and prolific mediators and arbitrators.

On April 24th, just prior to the keynote address, Judge Nudelman and other distinguished panel members from throughout the country will discuss “Mediating the High-Profile Case.” Judge Nudelman and the panel will explore the special dynamics in these types of mediations and how to approach them, including judicial pressure, political considerations, public scrutiny, and public impact.

Mediation has become a strong preference for governmental and judicial bodies determined to relieve the burden on courts to resolve high-profile disputes, such as mass tort claims. For example, mediation has played an integral role in resolving claims arising from the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the BP oil spill, and the Penn State University sexual abuse claims.

Judge Bernthal’s calm demeanor and deliberate approach helped us settle a very difficult case which had failed in a prior mediation.  His ability to put my client at ease and gain her respect was instrumental in getting the job done.  I would not hesitate to have Judge Bernthal mediate any of my future cases.
