San Francisco Superior Court Launches Pilot Judicial Settlement Program to Settle Larger, High-Exposure Cases

The San Francisco Superior Court is offering litigants a new Judicial Settlement Conference (JSC) program aimed at cases with an estimated 20 or more trial days, Presiding Judge Teri L. Jackson announced today.

Presiding Judge Jackson has selected Judge Angela Bradstreet to work with the litigants to settle these cases, beginning next month. The program is designed to preserve judicial resources and reduce the trial calendar by resolving non-Asbestos cases two to three weeks before the trial date. Judge Jackson will select other Judges to participate in the JSC program as needed.
