Pro Se Settlement Assistance Program
In October 2013, the Court established a Pro Se Settlement Assistance Program as a pilot program in the Western District of N.C. The program is available for voluntary application to all civil cases in which any party appears pro se. The program does not apply to prisoner civil rights cases; cases filed under 28 U.S.C. Sect. 2254 or 2255; bankruptcy appeals; social security cases; and any case in which the U.S. Government is a party with the exception of Equal Employment Opportunity Cases.
For more detailed information on how the case will progress under this program please review the Pro Se Settlement Assistance Program Clerk's Implementation Order at the link below.
