Idaho court official honored for encouraging alternative dispute resolution

An Idaho federal court official has been honored by the Judicial Council of the 9th Circuit for encouraging alternative ways of settling legal disputes, short of full-blown court trials. Susie Boring-Headlee, Alternative Dispute Resolution coordinator for the U.S. District Court in Idaho, has been awarded the Robert F. Peckham Award for ADR Excellence by the 9th Circuit, for her work promoting ADR in both the state and federal courts. She's served as a presenter and panelist at ADR workshops for judges; arranged for training of mediators in conjunction with the University of Idaho College of Law; organized "settlement week" programs at the district court; and worked with IT staff to ease the handling of ADR procedures in the court's electronic case filing system. The 9th Circuit also recognized McGeorge Law School in this year's awards; you can see their full announcement here.
