Because I Can/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Why would President Trump not wear a mask in public despite medical advice that this be done? Why would he tweet a conspiracy theory about Joe Scarborough killing an aide 19 years ago? The polls indicate that neither action is looked upon favorably. But sometimes we just do things because we can. Because we are angry. Because we want to hurt others. If that is your strategy for dealing with an opposing party, litigation is meant for you. If you need the “last word” litigation is for you. But if you want to summon your “better angels” and be civil even in disagreement, mediation makes sense. Win-Win will always trump Lose-Lose. Mediate don’t litigate.
