Abstract

In re Cody W. Smith, the judge disallowed the bankruptcy trustee’s appointment of a mediator and sparked a debate about mediator appointment. This column views that decision as an opportunity to re-visit two important issues with ethical underpinnings: the appointment of neutrals and the referral of cases to mediators.
