In March of 1986, the Minnesota legislature adopted an omnibus farm bill. A principal part of this bill was the "Farmer-Lender Mediation Act" s (hereinafter Act). The Act requires mandatory mediation notice in the case of any debt foreclosure proceedings brought against farm debtors.8 The Act was scrutinized by the Minnesota Court of Appeals in a case of first impression in Laue v. Production Credit Association.
