The Mississippi Court Annexed Mediation Rules provide that the court may order any case to mediation. Some judges and parties do not realize that the court has the authority to order mediation. This may be appropriate on some cases and worth filing a motion to do such. The Rules also allow a party to file to refer a case to mediation which many people are not aware of. If you can get the court to order the parties to split the fee, this may help on some unreasonable clients.
