16.6 Settlement conferences - The court may order a settlement conference to be held before a judge. All parties may be required to be present. For parties that are not natural persons, a natural person representing that party who possesses ultimate settlement authority may be required to attend the settlement conference. In cases where an insured party does not have full settlement authority, an official of the insurer with ultimate authority to negotiate a settlement may also be required to attend.
