Where an IMSA can be transformed into a judgment, this method encounters the same difficulties of enforcement by parties outside the court of origin. . d a communication on the conditional settlement of the whole case. On 16 April 2019, the General Court dismissed the action, ordering it to maintain jurisdiction under Section 664.6 of the Code of Civil Procedure for the application of the settlement agreement.
