Don't Add Settlement Terms When You Enforce a Settlement Under CCP 664.6!

With the right language, both short-form and long-form settlement agreements can be enforced using Code of Civil Procedure section 664.6. But what happens when a party asks the trial court to add a term that was not included in the original settlement?  In the video above, I discuss a recent Court of Appeal case addressing this issue. To read my case summary go to the home page of California Case Summaries™.



California Case Summaries™
Know the Law. Win More Cases.  

California civil lawyers who know the new case law get a competitive advantage and win more cases. However, California courts publish about 500 new civil cases each year making it hard to keep up, and many of the new cases significantly change the law! 

The perfect solution is California Case Summaries™ which provides one-paragraph summaries, organized by legal topic, of every new CA civil case published throughout each year. Subscribers get monthly case summaries with the Westlaw case citations, quarterly case summaries with the official case citations, and in early January each year an annual issue is published with all of the case summaries from the prior year with the official case citations. There's simply no other case summary subscription like this.
