. . . routinely attach the mediated settlement agreement in a Circuit Civil case to the report I file with the Court?
Okay, the answer is found in MEAC Opinion 2007-002 which provides, in summary, that “it would not be appropriate to routinely attach the mediated settlement agreement to a circuit civil case in light of the requirements of rule 1.730(b), Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.”
It is important to remember the following requirement from that rule:
The mediator shall report the existence of the signed or transcribed agreement to the court without comment within 10 days thereof. [Emphasis added.]
There’s more to this opinion which is worthwhile reading.
