Astronomical ClockMediation is often touted as a time and cost-saving method of dispute resolution in construction matters.  It is not without its critics.  Don Short recently posted a discussion,  "Why Bother with Mediation?".  Mr. Short's basic postion: "... mediation of a construction dispute is just an impediment to getting the matter resolved in a timely and cost efficient manner."  Mr. Short followed up in his piece "When Not to Use Mediation?" amplifying on the theme that time was money and that mediation clauses permitted a recalcitrant party to string the process out.
