  • 17 December 2019

In a recent case, a settlement agreement was concluded between a plaintiff and several defendants that were parties to a claim, which included an allocation of liability and the amount of damages. As a result, the claim against the settling defendants was dismissed. This judgment solves a problem often faced by parties to a tort claim in which one co-defendant objects to a settlement offer and the negotiations are halted as the agreeing defendants fear being exposed as a third party by the objector.
