This query is : Resolved
In a civil case one of the party is not interested in mediation but both sides advocates were agreed for mediation. The honourable Supreme Court ordered for mediation depending upon the agreement of both the advocates. What are the chances for the party for not to take part in the mediation? How that party can be liable to proceed further?

The moment mediation starts the mediator should inform the parties that he will act only as facilitator.Usually court grants two months time for mediation and if any of parties disagrees there ends the mediation and the file will return back to the court for trail.Advocates cannot insist the parties for settlement.
