If someone settles in mediation, they can't turn right around and press charges against the people they just settled with, can they? (especially when the charges are bogus and made up?) I thought the whole point of mediation was to resolve the situation... so signing it is agreeing to end the process, isn't it? Wouldn't turning right around and filing new charges (fake ones) completely contradict the signed agreement? Couldn't they get in trouble, especially since they were the ones up against charges in the first place and only got off because the other party agreed to mediate?
Our cousins dropped the criminal (harassment) charges in favor of mediation, because they just want to be left alone, but the other party (after signing the agreement) apparently turned right around to pull charges on them, as well as trying to get money out of our cousins that they don't even owe them.
(our cousins haven't done anything to them, btw)
