Mediators

The Ventura Superior Court provides to parties a two-tiered panel of mediators. The two-tiered panel consists of a panel of pro bono mediators and a panel of “party pay” mediators. All mediators on the pro bono panel have agreed to mediate not less than one pro bono case per calendar quarter and the mediation shall not be less than three hours. All mediators on the pro bono panel shall have completed at least twenty-five hours of formal mediation training by a recognized mediation training/education provider, and agree to provide brief review, preparation time and three hours of hearing time to the parties on a pro bono basis and pursuant to such further rules as may be designated for mediators by the Ventura Superior Court.

All mediators on the “party pay” panel will similarly provide three hours of mediation services per case at the rate of $150 per hour to be shared equally by all participating parties. To be eligible to appear on the “party pay” panel, the mediator shall have completed twenty-five hours of formal mediation training and have participated as a mediator in at least twenty-five mediations from any Superior Court with a minimum hearing time of two hours each.

Court Approved Civil Mediation Panels

Criminal & Traffic Database

Municipal Court cases began entering into the system as of January 1, 1989. No cases filed previous to this date are available in the database. Only current infractions and misdemeanors are available.

Superior Court cases started entering into the system in 1995 when the courts were combined. Due to the nature of Superior Court felony cases, a case filed prior to 1995 may be partially entered into the system or may not be entered at all.
