How confidential is mediation?
According to Ohio law, mediation communications are, with some exceptions, privileged and will not be permitted in court. Additionally, the parties may agree that all their discussions during a mediation session remain confidential. In situations where the court has ordered that mediation be attempted, the mediator may submit a report to the court stating that the mediation took place and that the matter did or did not settle. Otherwise, the mediator discloses nothing to the court.
