News Update from Keith Seat's Mediation News for the 21st Century:

After Agreeing to Mediators’ Proposal, Party Bound by Silence on Settlement Agreement
A fee-splitting dispute among some fifty law firms was resolved at the end of a difficult mediation when all parties finally accepted the mediators’ proposal for dividing fees. When the settlement agreement was drafted, however, one lawyer tweaked the terms and then was silent as the agreement moved forward and was signed by all other parties. Applying Illinois law, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit affirmed the district court’s conclusion that based on the parties’ long course of dealing the lawyer was bound by his silence even though he never signed the agreement.
