This author conducted a survey of mediators working with the courts in Lake County, Indiana in 1993-1994. At that time, thirty-four civil mediators were listed with the court administrator's office. The mediators were asked to track mediation cases for six months and to record the number of cases that had been referred to them for mediation, the number of cases actually mediated, the number settled, and the time to settlement after the referral to mediation
