On April 5, 2012, the Maryland General Assembly passed the Maryland Mediation Confidentiality Act (SB 856/HB 762).

This newly-passed legislation establishes that, with certain exceptions, all communications made in a mediation setting in which the parties are required to mediate by law or by referral from an administrative agency, or in which the parties agree in writing that the mediation will remain confidential, must be kept confidential.  Prior to the passage of the Maryland Mediation Confidentiality Act, Maryland court rules only required confidentiality in Circuit Court civil mediations.

The Maryland Mediation Confidentiality Act will amend portions of the Maryland Code’s Courts & Judicial Proceedings Article.
