The Rising Tide of Settlement

by ASchlossberg on July 2, 2015

Two recent New York settlements of $17 million and $6.5 million were made prior to litigation. New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer would like to lighten the docket. Stringer’s plan could decrease costs and aid in reallocating funds to other ventures. Pre-litigation dispute resolution often benefits all parties involved, minimizing time and cost expenditures as well as emotional involvement. Approximately 2,000 cases involving New York City were settled without litigation in 2014, and pre-litigation dispute resolution continues to gain popularity in many, if not all, courts and areas of law.
