This paper is concerned with the convergence of mortar methods applied to linear elasticity. We prove that the conventional mesh-dependent norms used in the analysis of mortar methods are bounded below by the BV norm. When combined with standard results, this bound establishes a decomposition-independent and mesh-independent proof of the convergence of mortar methods in linear elasticity.
