A Mediator Testifies

I’ve been following the news accounts of the murder trial of a husband who stabbed his wife to death after a mediation conference. The post this past Wednesday and the post earlier this month provide the foundation for today’s offering. According to this article in The San Mateo Daily Journal the family mediator testified that the Husband calmly left the mediation after he stood up and announced “I think we’re done here, thank you very much.” The mediator also said “It was well within the range of what I see” on a usual basis. All to say, expect the unexpected! There is nothing usual about the unexpected.
