In a 3.5 hour mediation the plaintiff reflected anger, however restraint. The defendant
angry and defiant and possibly in denial.
Each had strong positions in a Landlord Tenant Dispute.
The plaintiff desired resolution, the defendant raged.
The mediator after 3.5 hours lost objectivity.
The mediator was trained with hundreds of mediations.
A sharp tongue that only lasted seconds, went beyond neutrality.
A lesson to be learned.
