Automatic Mediaton in Michigan?

Michigan House Bill 5073 of 2017, would require mediation for civil litigation with over $25,000 in damages and for contested probate proceedings. The bill specifically excludes domestic relations cases from automatic mediation.

For further discussion, Lee Hornberger has written numerous general articles on arbitration and mediation. On his website, he’s featuring a whitepaper on automatic mediation by Mary A. Bedikian.

This has the potential to affect attorneys, ADR practitioners, litigants, and others. Stay informed, and contact your legislator with thoughts, concerns, or support.

Contact WDR to discuss further, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
