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?


Answer

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
