Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
If they refuse to sign a formal agreement with the attorney's fees removed and file a motion to enforce as they did with the overtime case, can I appeal? My feeling is that because they already have the overtime case approved, based on the preliminary agreement, they want me to signoff on the discrimination case, by signing the motion to dismiss. And they will just have the preliminary agreement applied to the discrimination case, presumably with my blessing.
I guess what I'm asking is should I sign the motion to dismiss before they sign the formal agreement. And if they don't sign the formal agreement and go ahead an enforce based on the preliminary agreement, can I do anything about it. Is there a window where I can appeal / reverse this? Would it be difficult for me to do so?
