Settlement Certainty: Making it Stick Under §664.6

A provision of the California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 664.6, is designed to help parties enforce litigation settlements to which everyone has agreed, but which may be called into question when someone suffers "buyer's remorse" or otherwise has a change of heart.
