  Detlie Law Firm - Settlement Process
Do not agree to any settlement terms, thinking you can change your mind until it is in writing; the courts have always said that a verbal agreement to settle a work injury case is an enforceable legal contract.
There are two kinds of settlements in Iowa, the open-file agreement, under the terms of Section 86.13 of the Iowa Code and the closed-file agreement, under the terms of Section 85.35 of the Iowa Code.
While the settlement is still subject to approval by the Workers' Compensation Commissioner, the parties have agreed to live by the terms of the settlement upon the Commissioner's approval.

  Mediation of Family Law Cases
It is scheduled either because all the courts in a county or one particular judge require a settlement conference before the case goes to trial, or because the parties and their lawyers ask the court to meet with them to help settle the case.
Settlement conferences may be available in civil cases, such as personal injury and contract disputes; in domestic relations cases, such as divorces and paternity suits; and in certain criminal cases.
In the counties in which a settlement conference is requested by the parties or their lawyers, the lawyers usually contact the judge or judges who handle settlement conferences, and they coordinate their schedules to find a convenient date for everyone.

  Settlement (law)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A settlement, as well as dealing with the dispute between the parties is a contract between those parties, and is one possible (and common) result when parties sue (or contemplate so doing) each other in civil proceedings.
Confidentiality is not possible in class action cases in the United States, where all settlements are subject to approval by the court pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and counterpart rules adopted in most states.
In criminal matters, the closest parallel to a settlement is a plea bargain, although this differs in several important respects, particularly the ability of the presiding judge to reject the terms of a settlement.

 Israeli Settlements and International Law
Jewish settlement in West Bank and Gaza Strip territory has existed from time immemorial and was expressly recognised as legitimate in the Mandate for Palestine adopted by the League of Nations, which provided for the establishment of a Jewish state in the Jewish people's ancient homeland.

The attempt to present Israeli settlements as a violation of this principle is clearly untenable.

 Law.com - Federal Judge Rejects $49 Million BAR/BRI Settlement
At a final settlement hearing on Monday, Central District of California Judge Manuel Real asked plaintiffs lawyers to provide time records reflecting the hours worked by five of the seven class representatives who each stand to receive a potential incentive award of $25,000 or $75,000 from the settlement.
The judge also asked both sides to file briefs by June 26 on the appropriateness of donating part of the settlement funds to legal charities under the "cy pres doctrine," which allows unclaimed funds to be given to a related charity.
Some lawyers had said the settlement was structurally unfair and inadequate because it includes a cap on individual awards of 30 percent of the amount each class member paid for the bar review course while allocating a portion of unclaimed funds to charitable legal causes under the "cy pres doctrine."

 SSRN-The Role of Law in Settlement by Russell Korobkin   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This less-recognized effect of law on ADR is the subject of this article, written for the forthcoming Handbook of Dispute Resolution.
More specifically, this article considers the ways in which these bodies of law create, shape, and constrain the ability of disputants to exercise bargaining power in ADR processes, which in turn affects both the likelihood that disputes will settle out of court and the terms of such settlements.
In order to assess this role of law in ADR, the article begins by presenting a brief analytical model of bargaining that explains the process by which lawyers attempt to settle disputes outside of the adjudicatory process.

 New Tax Law Affects Settlement Initiative
The deadline to elect to participate in the settlement initiative is Jan. 23, 2006.
The Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005, signed into law Dec. 21, 2005, changes this rule for these abusive tax avoidance transactions.  A participant in a “listed” or “undisclosed reportable” transaction will now be subject to the running of interest on the unpaid liability from the filing of the tax return.
The new law, however, specifically excludes individuals from this interest rule who take part in the IRS settlement initiative described in Announcement 2005-80.  This carve out is designed to encourage taxpayers to correct their abusive transaction activities by coming forward, conceding the legitimacy of their transaction, and paying 100-percent of the tax.
