Question

You and Mary Ann and Ginger are hanging out at Gilligan's Island Bar and Grill.

Mary Ann tells Ginger that

she's going to file a lawsuit against Thurston Howell in Bexar County court for false imprisonment and negligence.

Ginger tells her that before she can file a lawsuit, she first has to go through mediation. That's the rule in Texas. "It's in the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code," says Ginger.

Mary Ann turns to you. "Is that right?"


1.No, because you can't sue Mr. Howell in Bexar County court. You can only sue him in federal court since he lives in another state. 


2.No. ADR is always optional.


3.It sure is.


4.Not quite. The judge will probably order some attempt at ADR, but only after you've filed your lawsuit.
