DOJ/LA RIN: 1105-AB62 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Settlement Payments to Non-Governmental Third Parties 

This interim final rule revoked 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.  The Department's approach to settlement agreements that involve payments to non-governmental third parties is currently governed by an Attorney General Memorandum on this subject.  The Department is reviewing comments on the IFR in preparation for drafting a final rule finalizing the IFR.
