Under the Queensland regulatory scheme on court connected mediation, mediators are required to file with a registrar a certificate about the mediation in a form prescribed in the regulations. This goal tends to hasten a mediator to reach a conclusion. In fact, the two parties are ultimately responsible for exchanging information, bargaining, and eventually coming up with a solution or a series of steps in order to resolve the dispute. Hostile or argumentative tactics are likely to cause positions to become entrenched and thus discourage progress. Readiness is improved when disputants consider the viability of various outcomes.

Member Center: On Your Side investigation finds Alabama has spent more than $1.5 million on one prison lawsuit 2016-12-15T21:20:18Z (Alabama's Department of Corrections headquarters, Montgomery. Source: WBRC) (Beth Shelburne interviewing attorney Bryan Stevenson with Equal Justice Initiative. Source: WBRC) MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - The case playing out in a Montgomery courtroom putting mental healthcare of inmates in Alabama on trial is now in it's second week. But that's just one lawsuit Alabama's Department of Corrections (ADOC) is fighting and taxpayers may not realize they foot the bill for this type of litigation. Another lawsuit filed on behalf of inmates at St. Clair Correctional in Springville in 2014 is currently in mediation. That lawsuit argues unprecedented violence calls for emergency action, citing well-documented overcrowding and understaffing, as well as poor security and management. The Department of Corrections said the case is in mediation to "study the issues of the case and to determine if a resolution can be met as an alternative to litigation." But the attorney who filed the lawsuit, Bryan Stevenson with Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, said he's been asking the state to meet for years about issues at this prison in order to avoid litigation. "We asked the state to just meet with us, let our experts in, see what their recommendations are and if we agree that these things would make the prisons better, let's just do it, rather than spend millions of dollars in litigation," said Stevenson. "We did not get a positive response from the Department of Corrections to that request, which we've made multiple times," Stevenson said.
