Reprehensible Negotiation Tactics Just Don’t Cut It!

Although this Third District Court of Appeal case is not a mediation case specifically, it does provide some insight as to how a court evaluates reprehensible negotiation tactics - alternatively characterized as bad faith [arbitrary negotiation] in this corporate statutory structure or negotiation by extortion, generally. Neither was helpful to the appellant in Morales v. Rosenberg, 2005 Fla. App. LEXIS 16284 [Fla. 3rd DCA 2005]. As mediators, don’t you think we should be alert to these tactics and their consequences?
