The State Bar is seeking public comment on a proposal to eliminate the Committee on Mandatory Fee Arbitration and replacing it with a staff-driven program.
Deadline: March 15, 2019
Non-substantive edits to the same rule are also proposed
which make the language of the rule clearer and to note that the rule applies
while arbitrators are serving in that role.
To the extent that the Committee on Mandatory Fee Arbitration is eliminated, modest cost savings will be realized.
