One of the key concepts of mediation and mediators is that both sides of a disagreement should be able to trust the mediators with information they wouldn't give to the other party in the dispute.
If mediators could be called into court to weigh on the conduct of either party it could undermine the independent role that mediation is supposed to serve.
