#3 Early Mediation
The cardboard boxes were stacked on a heater vent. When the heater
came on, it ignited the boxes, destroying T's home as well as 3-4 others
down the row of homes.
T and C have $1M coverage each. If the plaintiff's attorneys worked 2-3
years on the file, there would still be only $2M in total coverage, so I set in motion a mediation, pre-suit, and all parties will mediate the case and "split up" the settlement pie. This points up the creative possibilities of mediation, even pre-suit. (21239)
