Settlement Agreement California 1542

However, you can invalidate a transaction authorization if you are able to prove that you have been authorized by fraud, error or unlawful influence. [Kaufman &Broad-South Bay v, Unisys Corp. (N.D. Cal. 1993) 822 F. Supp. 1468, 1474.] As noted in Section 3 of California Senate Act No. 1431, these additions of “released party” and “released party” should reflect interpretations of the terms of Section 1542, as interpreted in existing jurisprudence. The revisions are intended to remove confusion as to the types of cases covered by Section 1542 and to allow a released party who chooses to waive its rights under Section 1542 to clarify the scope and consequences of that waiver.

The new amended statute now tells releasing parties that Section 1542 does not only cover pecuniary claims and that, if they waive their rights under Section 1542, they waive the opportunity to assert a broader range of claims. . . .
