LYNCH v. SAMATAMASON INC., 00-1491, 00-1915
During settlement conferences before a judge, if neither party asks that any part of the discussion be recorded, the judge's failure to insist that the settlement terms be recorded does not invalidate the settlement, and a party that had a chance to get the settlement read into the record will not be heard to complain that the judge's recollection of settlement is inaccurate.
