How Would You Mediate This Case?

The title and this comment in an article on the Michael Richards (Seinfeld) flap caught my eye.

News Article

Michael Richards' Mea Culpa Mediation

"Last week, the men, who have agreed to abide by whatever recommendation the judge makes, also appeared on the Today show to tell their side of the story."

What is to be mediated? If it's a mediation, why would the judge be making a recommendation? Is this an example of where a restorative justice orientation could productively shape a session?

If you were the mediator, what would you be thinking about in preparation for the session? And how would you handle it?
