What is a Notice of Settlement?

Notice of Settlement

CRC Rule 3.1385(a) requires plaintiff to immediately file and serve a written notice of settlement.

Motion to Vacate Notice of Settlement

Plaintiff may contend that no legally binding agreement exists to settle her claim, and that this is sufficient to set aside the notice of settlement. (Irvine v. Regents of the University of California (2007) 149 Cal.App.4th 994, 1001-02 (“By alleging a dispute over whether the parties reached a binding settlement, plaintiff demonstrated good cause to restore the case to the civil active list.”).)

Under Code of Civil Procedure Section 473, subdivision (b), “[t]he court may, upon any terms as may be just, relieve a party or his or her legal representative from a judgment, dismissal, order, or other proceeding taken against him or her through his or her mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect.” However, the application for relief must be made “within a reasonable time, in no case exceeding six months, after the judgment, dismissal, order, or proceeding was taken.” (Code of Civil Procedure § 473(b); see also, Cruz v. Fagor America, Inc. (2006) 146 Cal.App.4th 488, 495 (relief under Section 473(b) is proper only if the moving party establishes proper grounds for relief and the motion is made within the applicable time limits).) section 473(b) “was never intended to be a ‘catch-all remedy for every case of poor judgment on the part of counsel which results in dismissal.’ [Citation.].” (Gotschall v. Daley (2002) 96 Cal.App.4th 479, 483.) “Courts have limited the application of the mandatory provision to those dismissals procedurally equivalent to defaults.” (Id.)

California Rules of Court, Rule 3.1385, requires a plaintiff to notify the court immediately upon settlement of the case. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 3.1385(a)(1).) Where a settlement is conditional, the party giving notice must specify the date by which a dismissal is to be filed. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 3.1385(c).)

“If the settlement agreement conditions dismissal of the entire case on the satisfactory completion of specified terms that are not to be performed within 45 days of the settlement, including payment in installment payments, the notice of conditional settlement served and filed by each plaintiff or other party seeking affirmative relief must specify the date by which the dismissal is to be filed.” (CRC 3.1385(c)(1).) “The only decision before the court at a rule 3.1385 hearing is whether to dismiss the case or restore it to the civil active list.” (Irvine v. Regents of University of California (2007) 149 Cal.App.4th 994, 1001.) If the party required to file a request for dismissal fails to do so within 45 days after the dismissal date in the notice, the court must dismiss the entire case unless good cause is shown why the case should not be dismissed. (Rule 3.1385(b), (c)(2).)

Sanctions

Code of Civil Procedure section 128.7 may be invoked for the wrongful filing of the notice of settlement. In determining the amount of the sanctions, sanctions “shall be limited to what is sufficient to deter repetition of this conduct or comparable conduct by others similarly situated.” (Code Civ. Proc. § 128.7, subd. (d).)
