26W Judge appointed as mediator

(1)

A Judge other than the Judge addressing an application may be a mediator.

(2)

However, a Judge acting as a mediator is to be treated as acting judicially and retains the same immunities as he or she has when acting as a Judge.

(3)

Despite subsection (2), a Judge who acts as a mediator must not sit as a Judge of the court on any of the same issues.
