Pre-Suit Circuit Civil Mediation Agreement is Enforceable

We often think of pre-suit mediation as occurring in only Family cases. However, with increasing frequency, Circuit Civil matters are being mediated pre-suit also.

In Fulford v. Drawdy Brothers Constuction, II, Inc., 30 Fla. L. Weekly D 1386 [Fla. 4th DCA 2005] the Fourth District Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court’s entry of a temporary injunction enforcing a pre-suit mediated settlement agreement which modified a non-compete agreement between a former employer and former employee.

How about that!
