So, Judge Sowder orders mediation/arbitration?
First is it binding?
I wouldn't think so, my read is that the judge is telling TTU to get this thing settled.
He makes the statement that the case is really about the contract yet he delays ruling on the other six causes by Leach including the Immunity issue.
He also tells Mike Leach he is no better than any other litigant so no expedited discovery, yet the next day he orders expedient mediation well before the completion of discovery?
Any thoughts from the DTN Lawyering Association?
