The letter states: "Our client’s goal in mediation would be the full resolution of the issues and the creation of a framework for settlement. However, we would consider mediation a success if it served to scope the issues before the Tribunal and reduce the time, expense, and complexity of the hearing."
In July LPAT replied: "A 2-day Tribunal-led mediation has been scheduled - December 9th and 10th, 2019. Direction of mediation brief requirements will be issued in November."
Despite high hopes for the mediation process, a hearing is still scheduled for 4 weeks beginning May 5, 2020. Should this proceed as scheduled, Participants are required to submit written statements to the Tribunal on or before April 3rd.
