New Ohio Commission on Dispute Resolution

The Ohio Supreme Court yesterday announced that it was creating a new Commission on Dispute Resolution, which essentially reconstitutes its Advisory Committee on Dispute Resolution, now elevating it to the status of a full-fledged Court commission.

The former Ohio Commission on Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management was disbanded last summer with the passage of the state’s HB 153 biennial budget. That commission had been created back in 1989 “to provide, coordinate, fund, and evaluate dispute resolution and conflict management education, training, and research programs in Ohio, and to consult with, educate, train, provide resources for, and otherwise assist and facilitate other persons and public or private agencies, organizations, or entities that are engaged in activities related to dispute resolution and conflict management.”

Applicant Rules 16.01 thru 16.14 for the Rules of Superintendence of the Courts are in the process of being formulated.
