I want to resolve the dispute, but the other party’s demands are unreasonable. What should I do?

I want to resolve the dispute, but the other party’s demands are unreasonable. What should I do?  Don’t let yourself get stuck refusing to make what you believe is a reasonable settlement offer or demand based on your opinion that the opposing party has made an unreasonable one! Instead, attempt to resolve disputes based on your reasonable evaluation. It is my job as mediator to assess, based on all the information presented, “the realm of the reasonable” in the context of potential resolution of each specific dispute and to bring the parties to that range.
