The Sussex and Lisbon Library Chronicles Part XLII (Mediation)

I think a divorce analogy can appropriately be used in this case.  Custody, too, if we throw in the farm land dispute.

Mediation over Haass library scheduled. (Sussex Sun, 9/8/2014)

As reported by the Kelly Smith.
Although court-ordered mediation is scheduled to begin on Oct. 8, the Pauline Haass Library Board — which will be dissolved in three months — may continue its legal battles with the town of Lisbon over farm land once donated to the town to be used for library purposes.

Library Board President Tim Dietrich says he has "absolutely not" ruled out the possibility the library board may appeal a recent decision by Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge James R. Kieffer, which resulted in an injunction against the library board that limits 2014 spending and an order requiring the library board, the town, and the village of Sussex to begin mediation over various legal issues.

However, Dietrich, who is also a village trustee, emphasized that the library board and the village of Sussex will abide by the judge's order and begin mediation with the town of Lisbon.
