Thompson v. The Florida Bar Doc. 61 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA JOHN B. THOMPSON, Plaintiff, v. THE FLORIDA BAR and DAVA J. TUNIS, Defendants. PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR COURT-ORDERED MEDIATION COMES NOW plaintiff, John B. Thompson, hereinafter Thompson, as an attorney on his own behalf, and moves this court for an order mandating mediation, stating: 1. Rule 16(a)5, FRCP, gives this court authority to order mediation. There has never been mediation, as The Bar's representative in an aborted "mediation" of the disciplinary matter had no authority to negotiate a settlement of the case. 2. In fact, record counsel for The Bar herein, Barry Richard, has stated to plaintiff that Bar President Frank Angones "knows nothing about this matter." If that is true, then mediation would be a good opportunity for those who are charged with the duty of overseeing discipline by The Bar, the Board of Governors, per Bar Rule 1-4.2, to become aware and become involved. I HEREBY CERTIFY that this has been served upon record counsel this 23rd day of August, 2007, electronically. /s/ JOHN B. THOMPSON, Plaintiff Attorney, Florida Bar #231665 1172 South Dixie Hwy., Suite 111 Coral Gables, Florida 33146 Phone: 305-666-4366 Case No. 07-21256 (Judge Adalberto Jordan) 1
