Can I fax my summaries directly to the case evaluator assigned to my case?

No. At least 14 days before the hearing, each party shall file with the ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) Clerk 3 copies of a summary and any supplemental documentation. Any summary, supplement or other document filed after the 14-day deadline will be subject to $150.00 late fee. All documents must be served on all attorneys of record and proof of service must be filed with the ADR Clerk.  Failure to file proof of service subjects the offending attorney to $150.00.
