DOJ/LA RIN: 1105-AB62 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Settlement Payments to Non-Governmental Third Parties 
Abstract:

This interim final rule revokes Department regulations issued during the prior Administration that prohibited (subject to limited exceptions), the inclusion of provisions in settlement agreements directing or providing for a payment or loan to a non-governmental person or entity that is not a party to the dispute. Going forward, the Department’s approach to settlement agreements that involve payments to non-governmental third parties will be governed by a new Attorney General Memorandum being issued on the Department’s website concurrently with this rule.
