Subrogation Law Since 1972

#3 Early Mediation

A fire occurred in a row of closely located single family, multistory homes. The "cause" home was owned by T, and was being remodeled by C Contractor. T rented an apartment on the first floor of the home to L. While L was on an extended trip, T boxed up his contents to allow C to continue on the remodel. T told C to move the boxes to L's apartment. C did so. T surveyed L's apartment after C moved the boxes to L's apartment. T had no right to enter L's apartment.

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)

Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen.
