On August 16, 2000, the U.S. District Court, in the case of Leon W. Bradley, Jr., et al v. Board of Public Instruction of Pinellas County, Case No. 8:64-CV-98-T-23TGW entered an Amended Final Order Withdrawing Federal Supervision and Granting Unitary Status, which approved an agreement between the parties embodied in an Amended Order dated August 30, 1999, a Stipulation dated December 22, 1999, and an Amended Stipulation dated June 29, 2000 (hereinafter referred to as the "Agreement"); dismissed that case; and reserved ancillary jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of the Agreement, if necessary. The Agreement contained Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Procedures1 which required in part that the parties first engage in informal discussions to attempt to resolve their differences, and, if that failed, to use mediation.
