FACT: In the recent directions hearing I spoke with Mr Brisciani’s lawyers before going before the Registrar so that we might make arrangements as to how to proceed. One of the agreements was to go before mediation.
“Mediation is a confidential process where an independent and neutral third party assists the disputants to negotiate and reach a decision about their dispute.”

FACT: On his site Mr Brisciani has said the following statement regarding the mediation…
“Most recently, Greg Smith has indicated he would like to meet to discuss ending this. I hope he's not hoping for an apology or payout.”
FACT: So Mr Brisciani has now publicly stated that WILL NOT apologise for the [alleged] defamatory publications.
And yet he wonders why the matter needs to be pursued through the courts.
