Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) is a pilot program in the Hartford and New Haven Judicial Districts to help
parties resolve Contract Collections (C40) cases in a simple, quick and low-cost way. It is an alternative to the
regular court process, which generally has more complicated procedures and rules, takes a longer time, and often
requires you to go to court for a hearing or a trial.
Can I participate in Online Dispute Resolution?
You can use Online Dispute Resolution for Contract Collections cases. Your claim is a Contract Collections case
if you are trying to get another person to pay money that is owed to you because you lent money to someone,
provided goods or services to someone but were not paid, or paid money without getting what you paid for.
What is Online Dispute Resolution and how can it help me?
Online Dispute Resolution is a program that uses specially-trained mediators, simplified forms, and less formal
procedures that may help you to settle disputes in a simple, fast, and low-cost way. It is a form of alternative
dispute resolution that may allow you to settle your dispute more quickly and without taking time off from work or
appearing in court.
By agreeing to participate in Online Dispute Resolution, you give up your right to:
• Have a jury trial and to present your case in person to the court at an evidentiary hearing.
• File an appeal from the decision made by the court on your case. The court’s decision is final and
binding.
• Object to evidence presented by the other side. Both parties will exchange and submit evidence to
the court. The court will review the evidence submitted by the parties and determine what is relevant
and reliable.
How do I agree to participate in Online Dispute Resolution?
• Review and sign the Online Dispute Resolution Selection on page 2 of this form.
• Have a marshal serve (deliver to) the person being sued (the defendant) a complaint, an
Appearance form, an
Online Dispute Resolution Answer
form, and an
Online Dispute Resolution
Notice to
Defendant.
• If the defendant agrees to participate in ODR, the defendant will complete that section of the
Online Dispute Resolution Answer
form, sign it, and deliver it to you.
What happens next?
• If the defendant agrees to participate in ODR, you will be contacted by the court. The court will
give you a deadline for filing evidence. Before that deadline, you will exchange evidence with the
defendant and file it with the court. You can file your evidence on paper or electronically.
Examples of evidence are receipts, repair orders, warranties, cancelled checks, money orders,
bills, contracts, a sworn statement from you or from a witness, or any other documents that will
prove your case.
• A mediation session will be scheduled so you and the defendant can work with a court mediator,
by video or telephone conference or in person, to settle your dispute in a way that works best for
all parties.
• If you and the defendant(s) cannot agree, the court will decide the case based on the papers that
you both have filed with the court. In the ODR program, you do not have to go to court for any
hearing.
