Settlement Remorse

After trial had commenced in a domestic relations case, a settlement was reached between the parties. A few days later, the husband had second thoughts and directed his attorney to seek to have the agreement set aside. The lawyer filed the motion, which was denied. The husband then sued the lawyer for malpractice. The Idaho Supreme Court held that the husband was charged with full awareness of the terms of the settlement and was estopped from bringing the malpractice claim. (Mike Frisch)
