Mandatory Settlement Conference

I went to court for a Mandatory Settlement Conference (MSC) in a divorce action today.  My client and I worked hard on the MSC Brief that we were required to provide to the court and to opposing counsel before the hearing.

Things don’t always go according to plan.  The Mediator who was going to handle the MSC did not show up due to some scheduling error, but because I believe MSCs are very helpful, we were able to move the court to reschedule it, in spite of the other attorney’s objections.
