Have We No Decency?/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on May 13, 2018


After Sen. John McCain announced his opposition to CIA nominee Gina Haspel, Kathy Sadler of the White Hose staff mad a crude reference to the fact that the Arizona Senator was likely to soon die. Maria Shriver posted this tweet in reaction “I feel badly that we have lost our decency. We have forgotten how to respectfully disagree.” Litigation often brings out the less exemplary qualities in the parties engaged in a disagreement. What to act decently? Respectfully disagree with your opposite “combatant”. Not sure how to do that? Strive for Win-Win. Not sure how to get to Win-Win? see your local mediator. Mediate don’t litigate. Do not be guilty of losing your decency.
