Mediation services have become increasingly popular to resolve disputes and conflicts outside the courtroom; this has increased in recent years. Mediation is provided by trained professionals who facilitate communication between the parties in conflict and help them identify and resolve the issues causing the dispute. Mediation can be used to resolve a wide range of disagreements, including family disputes, business disputes, workplace conflicts, and even disputes between neighbors.
In recent news, mediation services were rendered for the high-profile Dominion vs. Fox News trial. The voting machine company was under attack for the alleged rigging of the 2020 presidential election. The massive defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against Fox News was just hours away from starting when a world-renowned mediator, Jerry Roscoe, was called in to assist in brokering a deal for the case that was shaping up to be a historic trial. While the lead trial attorneys for Dominion and Fox had negotiated in attempts to reach a settlement, they could not reach an agreement, and no deal materialized, according to reports made to CNN. However, within two days of Roscoe being brought in, he was able to finalize an agreement that was appealing to both parties and ultimately averted the six-week trial.
