IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR
THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
1:16 CV 26
SHIRLEY ANN FEDORA,
ALISHA SANE LOLLAR,
THIS MATTER has come before the undersigned upon the Court’s own
motion during a hearing of Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel (#24) which took place on
June 6, 2017. At that time, the undersigned made inquiries of Defendant’s counsel
as to whether or not the parties had selected a mediator in this matter. Defendant’s
counsel advised that he had made several proposals to Plaintiff as to a mediator who
could be selected and the Plaintiff had not responded. Defendant’s counsel did
present an email record (Def’s Exhibit #1) showing that attorney Kathy Gleason of
Asheville, NC had been contacted by Plaintiff as to whether or not Ms. Gleason
would act as a mediator. Defendant’s counsel advised that he did not have any
objection to the selection of Ms. Gleason. Mediation is to be completed in this matter
on or before July 1, 2017. To assist the parties, the undersigned will order that Kathy
Gleason be appointed as the mediator to act in this case. This Order does not mean
that the Court will pay for the services of Ms. Gleason. Those remain the obligation
of the parties in this case. However, it does mean that a mediator has been selected
and the parties should immediately contact Ms. Gleason to schedule a mediation so
that mediation can occur before July 1, 2017.
Plaintiff is particularly advised that her failure to participate and appear at the
various proceedings in this matter, including mediation, could possibly result in the
dismissal of her action.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Kathy Gleason is appointed by the
Court to act as mediator in this case. The parties are responsible for the costs of the
services of Ms. Gleason and mediation shall occur on or before July 1, 2017. The
Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Order to Ms. Gleason with the compliments
of the Court.
Signed: June 20, 2017
