The KY Supreme Court expanded its Rules around #mediation via a new Administrative Order, that allows for virtual mediation as its own option, independent of covid19 or otherwise. It reinforced mediation as confidential, the mediator’s role as a neutral facilitator, recognized its usefulness to settle disputes and allowed mediators to confer with counsel or parties prior to mediation. We have arrived, KY! Now let’s get on to solutions based, future-facing, conflict mitigating, #FamilyLaw mediation! 2022 coming in solid. Happy weekend, everybody!
