In re Vinson
The appellate court found that, while a court has authority to compel parties and their representatives to attend mediation with full settlement authority, the insured did not offer evidence that the representative that attended mediation lacked full settlement authority, and the court could not force an individual to appear as the party representative simply because she had more knowledge regarding the claim.
