The court last month assigned a real estate easement dispute to Jim W Hildreth a mediation panel member.
The case involved multiple parties, and a trial date was set for spring of 2009.
The parties, including attorneys met in mediation and at the end of the day, decided to continue mediation for a second date.
6.5 hours latter a wriiten agreement will be produced and the outcome of the mediation will resolve the dispute and law suit.
The settlement occured for several reasons, the parties were willing to work at the dispute, the attorneys were professional and allowed the mediation to work.
The parties reached consenus and the court will have one less trial date.
