Mediation and Brainwashing

In this article appearing in the Birmingham News all 10 plaintiffs in a lawsuit that alleges brainwashing by a religious group have been ordered to appear at the mediation conference. The allegations include fraud, misrepresentation, undue influence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment. The plaintiffs claim they were enticed by the religious group and their assets drained. If you were the mediator, what “thoughts” would you have about proceeding?
