As of July 1, 2021, the Georgia Uniform Mediation Act (GUMA) covers all mediations in Georgia, whether or not they are court-connected. Before GUMA, the Supreme Court Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Rules only offered confidentiality and party protection to court-connected mediation sessions.  GUMA provides these protections, and others, to those cases mediated outside of the judicial system (often referred to as private cases).
