THE HONORABLE VALERIE P. COOKE, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
REPORTER: NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR PETITIONER(S): NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR RESPONDENT(S): NONE APPEARING
MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS:
Defendant K.C., a minor, moved the court for determination of good faith settlement between
K.C. and plaintiffs (ECF No. 41). No response or opposition to the motion was filed. Therefore,
IT IS ORDERED that the motion for determination of good faith settlement (ECF No. 41)
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the settlement reached between K.C. and plaintiffs is
reasonable and in good faith in light of the facts, allegations and defenses involved in the action. The
settlement terms were reached after careful consideration and mutual agreement between the settling
parties. There has been no collusion, fraud, or tortuous conduct between the settling parties, and the
amount to be paid by K.C. is consistent with a reasonable evaluation of a potential judgment against
K.C. in this matter. Plaintiffs and K.C. have given full and due consideration to the financial
conditions of the settling parties, the discovery conducted in this case, the possible results of trial in
this matter, and litigation costs and expenses that would be incurred absent this agreement and other
financial benefits from settlement. All parties were accorded a fair and full opportunity to review
and evaluate the nature of the allegations. After evaluation of all aspects of the claims, K.C. and
plaintiffs agreed to settle their claims in consideration of a $1,000 payment to be paid by K.C.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the settlement terms shall be considered a good faith
settlement pursuant to N.R.S. § 17.245, thereby precluding any pending or future claims for implied
indemnity, equitable indemnity or contribution against K.C.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
