Visit https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/8426 to play the mediation game. Follow the prompts to begin “The Angry Neighbors,” a free interactive mediation exercise.
<
<
After completing the mediation, answer the following questions:
<
<
Were you able to successfully mediate this dispute? If you did not reach a successful resolution, go back and try it again. See if you can reach a successful resolution.
<
Please explain how you successfully mediated this dispute. What mediation strategies did you learn? If, after multiple attempts, you cannot mediate the dispute, explain why you believe a resolution could not be reached.
<
For an alternative assignment if you cannot access the game, do the following:
<
<
Research another case or an article that involves any of the types of ADR discussed in chapter 4 that you did not analyze in this week’s discussion. Alternatively, you can summarize a personal situation in which you experienced ADR that you did not discuss in this week’s discussion.
<
Include a summary of the case or article along with a link to the case or article. You do not have to include a link if you discuss a personal experience.

Fall Inside Starbucks Leads to $240K Settlement
<
<
By Robert Storace | August 22, 2017 at 03:21 PM | Connecticut Law Tribune
<
<
A Long Island woman who had neck surgery after slipping on a piece of cardboard at a Starbucks has settled her injury case for $240,000. The Starbucks was privately owned by California-based Gordon Retail Concepts.
<
<
In addition to a neck injury, 59-year-old Theresa Tedesco suffered a herniated disc, rotator cuff tendonitis, right arm pain, shoulder pain and had difficulty sleeping following the incident, according to her attorney, Ryan Miller.
<
<
“She described it as slipping on a banana peel,” said Miller. “What looked like a rug at the entrance was actually a piece of cardboard upside down.”
<
<
The two sides agreed to the settlement following four hours of private mediation on Aug. 2. The two sides were far apart before the mediation, Miller said.
<
<
“Going into mediation, they were only at $30,000 to $50,000,” said Miller, who added “we were pushing the boundaries and we were [asking] at like $500,000 to start.”
<
<
Miller said he felt comfortable recommending $240,000 to his client. “I never recommend to my clients to settle for anything I do not think is reasonable,” he said. The settlement was reached a couple of weeks before the start of trial, said Miller. Tedesco’s neck has felt better since the surgery, but she still has shoulder pain, Miller said. Tedesco had nearly $60,000 in medical expenses.
