Abstract

The city of Glen Cove, Long Island, and Central American refugees who sought day labor at a "shaping point" in Glen Cove experienced a bitter and protracted controversy in the late 1980s. After nearly two years of litigation, the parties decided to attempt to work out their differences in mediation. The mediation process proved fruitful in resolving not only the issues being litigated, but also many other issues that, although not causes for legal action, were nonetheless extremely important to the individuals and groups involved. Agreements the parties reached called for ongoing collaborative efforts on many fronts, transforming an adversarial contest into a community collaboration.

Keywords: Mediation, Dispute Resolution, ADR, Glen Cove, shaping point
