Offers of Judgment


At its regular meeting on June 29, 1999, the Law Revision Commission voted to undertake a study of Offers of Judgment pursuant to a request of Judiciary Committee Co-Chairmen Donald E. Williams, Jr. and Michael P. Lawlor. The request asked for a report to the Judiciary Committee prior to the 2000 session and further specified that:

" We are, in particular, concerned that the law provide appropriate (but not coercive) incentives to induce early settlement of matters prior to litigation."

Commission members serving on this committee are:

I. Milton Widem
Representative Robert Farr
Joseph J. Selinger
Professor Colin C. Tait
