COOPER TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY
Before the Court is the parties’ Joint Motion to Approve Minor Settlement. (ECF No. 92). The
parties have reached a confidential settlement agreement in this matter, and they ask the Court to approve
the confidential settlement agreement with respect to the claims involving K.A., a minor.
Upon consideration and the recommendation of the guardian ad litem filed under seal with the
Court (ECF No. 91), the Court finds that the parties have shown good cause for approval of the
confidential settlement agreement with respect to the claims involving K.A., a minor, that there is a
dispute as to liability in this case, that the confidential settlement agreement is a compromise settlement
agreement and not an admission of liability on the part of Defendant, and that the Court is of the opinion
that the confidential settlement agreement is just, fair and reasonable and in the best interest of K.A, a
minor, and should be approved. Accordingly, the parties’ Joint Motion to Approve Minor Settlement
should be and hereby is GRANTED. Any and all claims of K.A., a minor, arising out of the automobile
accident that occurred on or about August 15, 2009 in Harrison County, Texas and made the subject of
this Action are forever released and resolved.
Pursuant to the confidential settlement agreement, Plaintiffs are directed to file with the Court
a notice of dismissal of all claims in this Action with prejudice within ten (10) days of the entry of this
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 13th day of January, 2014.
