The Supreme Court of Ohio is piloting an Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) pilot project focused on mediating foreclosure and eviction matters. Approximately five local courts in Ohio will be designated as "ODR pilot project courts."

Courts designated as pilot project courts will:

  • Receive technical assistance from the Supreme Court of Ohio;
  • Have an opportunity to provide input on vendor selection;
  • Receive training;
  • Receive pertinent materials to support the ODR pilot program, including 12 months access to the platform to be used for online mediation;
  • Identify a mediator(s), administrator, and judge to oversee the project;
  • Agree to use the platform for an agreed-upon minimum number of cases, as appropriate and where such cases are available, using the ODR platform over the course of the pilot program period.

Interested courts should complete the Online Dispute Resolution Statement of Interest


The Supreme Court of Ohio has developed a website to provide guidance and direction to Ohio courts in their efforts to procure goods and services such as technology (audio/video equipment, case management systems, etc.). The site includes resources designed to guide courts through the various stages of procurement, including requests for proposals, contracting, and project management. While these resources will serve as helpful and informative reference tools for courts, it is not an all-inclusive instructional guide. The Supreme Court of Ohio remains committed to assisting Ohio courts and providing guidance in regards to large procurements when needed.
