Full text
2. A party may, for a serious reason, be exempted from participating in a mandatory mediation session.
The following constitute a serious reason:
(1)  the existence of an order preventing a party from being in the presence of another party;
(2)  the fact that the travelling expenses related to the party’s participation in the mediation session exceed the possible advantages;
(3)  the fact that the parties have already participated in a mediation session for the same dispute.
