Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A settlement agreement is considered some deal between the parties that neither side is 100% happy with, but that both sides can live with. It is a compromise that is negotiated by the parties to a dispute and it is entered into like a contract. Once signed, the settlement agreement would be a binding contractual agreement between the parties that has to be honored.
Even if the information is from after the agreement, if this pertains to the issues that were the subject of the settlement agreement, you are precluded from using it and they are correct. If this information has to do with some other matter not subject to the issues in the settlement agreement, then you could file it.
