Abstract:     
The authors argue that the Minnesota Civil Mediation Act suffers from inconsistent policy choices, lack of integration with other statutes and rules, and ambiguous and incomplete language. The technical provisions of the Act jeopardize the finality of mediated settlements inviting extended litigation to bring peace and end the conflict. Participants in mediations, parties and lawyers alike, may be at risk in terms of fulfilling their expectations and obligations under Minnesota's statutory scheme.
