Federal judge orders new form of ADR--rock, paper, scissors--for dueling litigants
Should mediators be worried? You be the judge:
A federal judge in Florida, at the end of his patience with two quarrelsome litigants apparently incapable of resolving even minor issues without judicial involvement, has ordered both of them to resolve their latest disagreement over the site of an upcoming deposition by playing rock, paper, scissors.
You can view the text of the order, which, in the words of the judge, "fashion[s] a new form of alternative dispute resolution,", here at CNN.com.
