Is mediation mandatory for civil lawsuits?
Generally, parties to a dispute can voluntarily submit their dispute to mediation in hopes of reaching a resolution. However, many business contracts dictate that any dispute between parties be first submitted to mediation before submitting the dispute to the court. Moreover, in situations where one party has filed a lawsuit against another in the Superior Courts of North Carolina, the parties will be ordered to attend mediation prior to trial.
