Imagine a statute that requires you to be neat in writing a mediation agreement – is this for real? Well, it is and you can find such a statute in Chapter 2005-141 of the Florida Statutes [SB 1312] on page 13, lines 1 – 29, relating to Recreational Vehicles. Actually, the statute gives mediators excellent guidance in reminding us that “the devil is in the details” in drafting an agreement and in setting forth times for performance – good lessons to be learned by reading this section. The statute, by the way, was effective June 3, 2005.
