Mediator Horror Stories

ADR Prof Blog

I’m in the process of finishing up an article inspired by a horrific local mediator who, as a result of his “mediation” actions, now resides in the state penitentiary. I’ll be posting more about the article and the mediator’s actions after the piece is finished and submitted for publication. That said, presumably there are numerous other mediator horror stories that are also not well-known , some of which already are documented in some way and others of which need to be documented. As a result, I’m trying to create a collection of such stories to share with a broader audience. So, here’s my request. If you know a mediator horror story and it can be documented in some way, I’d like to add it to my collection. You can post the relevant information in the comments or contact me at art.hinshaw@asu.edu.

Thanks for your help with this.
