Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a suit brought against a police officer and a restaurant owner on behalf of minors, claiming civil rights violation, false imprisonment, and injuries suffered arising from a dispute over a bill owed to the restaurant, the district court's conclusion that the parties reached an enforceable oral agreement to settle their dispute is affirmed where: 1) given the record, the district court had no choice but to confirm the magistrate judge's finding that the plaintiffs - directly or through their lawyer - accepted the agreement; 2) the material terms were definite and certain - defendants would pay $6000 to the plaintiffs in exchange for their dismissal of the lawsuit; and 3) district court did not abuse its discretion in finding that it had complied with Local Rule 17.1.
