Welcome to the fourth issue of the 2011-2012 Mayhew-Hite Report. The tenth volume of the Report so far has addressed the proposed Arbitration Fairness Act, mediation in the domestic violence context, and the disconnect between the executive and judicial branches in interpreting domestic arbitration statutes. In this last issue, the Report focuses on the effects that the recently decided Frye and Lafler decisions might have on the plea bargaining process and also addresses the role of judges in reviewing settlements.

I hope you, the reader, have found the Report to be a useful and informative publication this year. As I prepare to graduate, I am sad to say farewell but proud to introduce next year’s editor—Adam Vernick. Adam comes to the Report as a rising third-year law student and successful staff member of the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution.

The Report always welcomes feedback and suggestions for improvement. If you, the reader, have a topic, article, or case that you would like to see the Report include, please email me. Additionally, if you would like to submit a paper for the Lead Article feature, please contact me so that we may discuss that opportunity.

Thank you for reading!
