Wrongful death case involving jail suicide to go to mediation

Pennsylvania readers may remember the story of Sandra Bland, the woman who died last year in a Texas county jail cell after being arrested for a minor traffic violation. The death was classified a suicide, but critics said law enforcement handled the situation improperly by failing to put Bland on suicide watch, failing to check on her, and not taking other precautions to prevent death by suicide.

Enforceability of mediation agreements and arbitration awards, P.2

Last time, we briefly addressed the enforceability of arbitration awards. To recap: arbitration awards are legally binding and enforceable once they are confirmed by the court, but they may be modified, corrected or vacated after confirmation, depending on the circumstances of the case. Those who have been involved in an arbitration proceeding and who feel the outcome was not proper, for one reason or another, should work with an experienced attorney to have the matter properly addressed.
