Posted on June 6, 2014 · Posted in Mediation

What is the Court told happened The court is informed of the following:

1. If a full or partial agreement is reached, the court is provided with a copy of the terms of such agreement;

2. If no agreement has been reached, but the parties jointly desire to continue to mediate, the court is informed that the parties have asked to continue the mediation for a later date or by conferences among or between the parties and the mediators, which may require additional sessions, with the court being informed only that the parties are continuing to mediate; or

3. If any party unilaterally insists that there is no set of circumstances in which a partial or full settlement can be reached, the mediator declares an impasse, and the only thing the court is informed about is the impasse. The court never is informed of the length of the sessions, the matters discussed, but rather, only that an attempt was made which was not successful.
