Hello and thank you for using Just Answer
Fines and penalties are not allowed as a deduction. Subchapter A, Sec. 1.162-21 of the Tax Code deals with this subject. It will depend on how the agreement is worded. If there are punitive damages due to the ruling then they would be under penalty and not deductible.
