Enforcing Mediation Agreements

(4) With regard to the manner in which courts implement mediation agreements: (a) courts may stay disputes or arbitration proceedings in order to facilitate compliance with this Agreement. (b) In addition, the courts may order the parties to make the necessary and relevant disclosures in the context of interlocutory proceedings (e.g. B in order to send briefs to each other) to ensure that the mediation proceeds as smoothly as possible. 5. If the Tribunal considers that a party is attempting to abuse the procedure of the Tribunal by requesting the stay of proceedings as a delaying tactic, it may refuse the application of the mediation agreement. This is based on the principle that the General Court retains a preponderant prerogative to facilitate the settlement of disputes in an efficient and effective manner. .
