"Timing Is Everything" The Appropriate Timing of Case Referrals to Mediation: A Comparative Study of Two Courts

This publication details the result of a study which looked at two demographically similar counties, James City County and York County, Virginia, in the 9th Judicial District to determine whether or not there was any empirical evidence to suggest that early intervention mediation resulted in a greater number of successfully mediated cases than the more traditional approach of summonsing the parties to Court for a preliminary hearing prior to a referral to mediation.
