Use the Mediation Memorandum for any applicable settlement agreements.


Street parking is available inconsistently and there is one small parking lot designated for the courthouse.


When arriving at the courthouse, go to the clerk’s office, which is down the hallway directly across from security. If parties want to mediate, there are multiple mediation rooms to use. If none are available, check in with the clerk who can direct you to an available room.


HPO cases are referred out of Courtroom 1. When entering Courtroom 1, introduce yourself to the assistant clerk seated in the judge’s box. She will check to see if any of the parties have yet arrived, and if not, will refer available cases during the call of the list.


For Harassment Prevention Orders, when the case has been mediated (with or without a settlement) take the file to the clerk’s office and request that copies be made of each document. Once the mediator has received copies, take the file back to Courtroom 1 and deliver it to the assistant clerk who referred the case.
