Q. I have started a law suit and have been offered a settlement.

What is a settlement and what does it to do to my law suit?


Most cases do not go to trial. Instead, the parties come to an agreement between themselves. This is called a settlement agreement or settlement. The CourtHelp Glossary definition is:

settlement (settlement agreement):  A formal, voluntary, signed, written agreement between the parties that solves the issues in a case before a Judge's decision or a jury verdict
