Mediation, relatively speaking, is a new field or science (at least in the formal sense…people have been informally mediating disputes for millenia). Last month, mediation lost one of its stars in Sam Kagel. Mr. Kagel helped settle labor disputes primarily, including Longshoremen strikes and most notably, the NFL strike in 1982. Mr. Kagel was 98 when he passed. Rest in peace.
