“Having served on the Supreme Court bench for almost 30 years, I know the value of resolving litigation before trial. Whether that resolution is by mediation and settlement or arbitration, a matter than can be resolved without the mental and financial cost of litigation is almost always a win for all parties.”

Justice Thomas A. Stander, Senior Counsel
