The courts often require the parties to try to settle their lawsuits by submitting the matter to a neutral for a non-binding mediation. One of the difficulties is getting everyone to agree on a mediator.
Mediation is only useful if both sides have investigated their respective cases, had sufficient discovery so they know all the issues and evidence both parties have and truly want to settle.
Without all these elements the parties are usually wasting their time and money.
