You Settled Your Case, Right?
This episode is Part Two of a two-part series discussing conferencing and the settlement process. Did you know that once you reach a settlement with a Conference Litigation Representative or Solicitor, it has to be approved by an Administrative Law Judge? The issue of settlement approval has been the subject of cases before the Review Commission for a number of years, and several more cases are currently pending. Chris and Arthur discuss the approval process and inform operators of what they should be aware of to get approval for a settlement agreement, including best practices for providing good information that justify terms of a settlement agreement. They also discuss trends in caselaw on the topic of settlement approval and what it means for operators going forward.
