This case was settled for a confidential amount on the fifth day of trial for the amount of Defendant's pretrial offer.
Plaintiff was a guest at Defendant's hotel with her minor child. Plaintiff's ex-husband, with whom she was involved in an ongoing child custody dispute, asked for and obtained Plaintiff's guest receipt from the hotel. He used the receipt as evidence of bad parenting in their ongoing child custody court proceedings.
Moments before Plaintiff was set to testify, she decided to settle for a confidential sum, which had been offered by the Defendant a year earlier in the form of a Proposal for Settlement. Hence, the Plaintiff took the Defendant's pre-trial offer as the trial neared its conclusion.
