Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To answer directly, the 'scope' of the release in that situation would be based on the language of the decree. For example if one party wants to modify the language to permit suits for both parties if there is a specific fact found within the next 3 years (purely as an example), then the scope of the enforceable release would include all of the waivers and conditions of the consent decree plus this additional condition that would be imposed on the decree. Hope that helps.
