Mediation Conference Physical Safety – And Afterwards!

Florida Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators Rule 10.420(b)(5) Adjournment or Termination provides:

A mediator shall terminate any mediation if the physical safety of any person is endangered by the continuation of mediation.

If the mediator terminates as a consequence of endangerment, then what? What about physical safety after the mediation conference? Should we be concerned what happens then? Read this story in the San Mateo Daily Journal to expand our thinking and learn what this estranged husband did just before allegedly stabbing his wife to death after a mediation conference.
