Superior Court Lemon Law Program Given Permanent Status

Under the Lemon Law Pilot Program, begun in January 2006, parties in motor vehicle Lemon Law cases in Superior Court are given the option of selecting the complementary dispute resolution (CDR) modality to which the case will be referred – arbitration, mediation, or voluntary binding arbitration. 

Based on an evaluation of the pilot program for calendar years 2006 through 2008, the Supreme Court recently authorized the program to continue on a permanent basis as the Lemon Law Program.  Arbitration will continue to be the default CDR modality to be used when parties fail to affirmatively select or to agree on a CDR modality.

Questions concerning the Lemon Law Program may be directed to the following:
