Cal. Code Regs. Tit. 11, § 3200 - Authority and Scope
This chapter contains the Attorney General's guidelines for review of settlements by persons proceeding "in the public interest" pursuant to Health and Safety Code section 25249.7(f)(4). The provisions of this chapter are guidelines, which are not binding on litigants or the courts, but provide the Attorney General's view as to the legality and appropriateness of various types of settlement provisions, and the type of evidence sufficient for the private plaintiff to sustain its burden of supporting the proposed settlement. The guidelines are not a comprehensive identification of all factors that should be considered in reviewing settlements, but identify particular issues that are likely to occur frequently. This should assist the parties in fashioning settlements to which the Attorney General is unlikely to object, and assist the courts in determining whether to approve settlements.
Note: Authority cited: Section 25249.7(f)(4) and (5), Health and Safety Code. Reference: Section 25249.7(f)(4) and (5), Health and Safety Code.
