Thank you to Martin, Ray, Matthew and Andy for your thoughtful posts on the use of litigation as a conflict resolution tool. What I would like to do next is to carefully read Martin’s essay, synthesize everyone’s points and reflect them back to you to make sure I understand them.
Unfortunately, this is the time of the year that my other volunteer activities reach a crescendo (so to speak) so it may be over the holiday break that this happens.
Nevertheless, I think this is a rich and robust topic for discussion. Our greatest number of hits for this blog occurs when we discuss this, so it seems like our readership feels the same way. I am looking forward to further engagement and enlightenment.
So stay tuned.
If anyone knows where I could get a searchable electronic version of Jack Ward Thomas’s “The Journals of a Forest Service Chief”, it would be helpful- he has some great quotes on this topic which I would prefer not to have to search for and type in manually.
