Mediation fees received by mediators who are also arbitrators shall not be included in the definition of "revenue" for purposes of Rule 10308(a)(5)(A)(iv), so long as the mediator is acting in the capacity of a mediator and is not representing a party in the mediation.
Arbitrators who also serve as mediators shall disclose that fact on their arbitrator disclosure forms.
