The linked document below outlines the Eagle-Picher Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Procedures. To enter into ADR, a claimant must provide a written request for ADR to the CPF. In order to place a claim on the ADR docket and initiate the ADR process, claimant must submit a $250.00 processing fee. Claimants (with the Trust's consent) may choose from either the pro bono panel, a panel of asbestos plaintiff litigation attorneys who volunteer to serve as neutrals, or from a panel of paid arbitrators who have been trained in asbestos litigation. Each party must pay one-half of the paid arbitrator's fee. If a binding award in favor of the claimant is issued or if a nonbinding award in favor of the claimant becomes final and is not appealed, the EPI Trust will return the $250.00 EPI ADR processing fee.
