In a civil case, what's the difference between "mediation", "neutral evaluation", "judicial arbitration", and ADR?
I'm the plaintiff in a civil suit seeking unlimited damages. I conferred with opposing counsel as required by the rules of court. The defendant expressed willingness to mediate, but I'm not sure I want to. I see there are other alternatives to mediation, but I don't know what they mean. Case is in L.A. superior court.

Mediation is when you talk it out with someone there to oversee the conversation.
Neutral evaluation is when someone else reviews the case and decides for you.
Judicial arbitration is when you both plead you case to a judge, and he MAKES you reach an agreement.
Not sure what adr is.
