On Dec 28, 2009, Peggy A. Quince, chief justice of the Supreme Court of Florida, signed an administrative order requiring "managed mediation" for all residential foreclosure cases filed in the state courts. In Order No. AOSC09-54, the Florida Supreme Court approved with minor changes the recommendations made in a final report by the 15-member Task Force on Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Cases issued last August. The task force developed "parameters" for qualifying providers, which the court also approved. The parameters include being a not-for-profit organization, being politically and professionally neutral, and being capable of both sustaining operations with no fiscal impact on the courts and administering large caseloads in an efficient way. The task force recommended an IT platform to facilitate secure and efficient access to information the parties need to understand their case prior to mediation and move away from more chaotic means of exchanging information.
