Reaching a Legal Settlement

Nadia: I’m not sure about this Civil lawsuit. I don’t want a long Trial.

Andre: Relax. This case will never go to trial. For Disputes of this kind, neither party wants To fight it out in court, so we almost always reach a Settlement.

Nadia: If we do go to court, the Legal fees could Skyrocket. I couldn’t afford that.

Andre: If we reach a settlement, you won’t have to worry too much about that.

Nadia: All right, but what if they don’t want To admit wrongdoing?

Andre: If we reach a settlement, they don’t need to. They’ll simply Pay out.

Nadia: Even if they don’t admit it, at least I’ll be able To talk freely about it.

Andre: Well, that might be a problem. Many settlements require Confidentiality – from both Parties.

Nadia: You mean if I settle, I can’t talk about it?

Andre: If there is a confidentiality Clause, you’d be in Breach of contract if you discussed the settlement.

Nadia: I didn’t know that. You mean I can’t talk about what they did to me without Getting my day in court?

Andre: That’s the Long and short of it.

Nadia: I guess Justice is blind – but only for the rich!
