|The parties present all relevant evidence and stipulate to as many facts as possible to allow time for the real issues to be dicided. Reasoned awards as requested by the parties.|
|Both parties present their cases with names of witnesses and documents intended to prove key facts after which time I prepare the evaluation of claims and proofs. Prior to and after reading the evaluation the parties are offered the opportunity to mediate.|
