Description

Settlement agreements; indication of contingent dismissal. Provides that, in any case in which a creditor is seeking a money judgment against a debtor, if the parties indicate that they have entered into a written settlement agreement, the court shall indicate that dismissal of such case is contingent upon compliance with such agreement and provide for a continuance of the case to allow for full payment pursuant to the agreement. The bill requires a creditor to file a motion to dismiss with the court once full payment is made by the debtor. The bill allows a creditor to file a motion to enforce the terms of such settlement agreement if a debtor is in default of any terms of such agreement. Read the Bill »
