The issue for this article is the impact of certain court-led forces on mediation and my suggested conclusion about the effect of these forces upon, in particular, commercial mediation. The decisions discussed in this article considered in isolation may be seen as a positive endorsement of the efficacy of commercial mediation and the professionalism of commercial mediators. However, I suggest that when considered together they may in reality be detrimental to mediation as a process.
