    The mediation process was not helpful. I felt that the mediator did not take my case seriously, bragged about himself, his accomplishments, and the other cases he had mediated, "succeeding 90% of the time." The mediator was best friends with everyone, from Bill Clinton to Judge Barbadoro, a problem for me, and in this case, conflictory. When he compared me to some numbskull, or similar term, I was speechless. Another snide remark about federal court being intimidating was uncalled for, too.
