Hi, I would appreciate your help in this particular situation. I want to setthe my court pending case and the defendant is willing to negotiate a settlement. There are 9 causes of action and one of them is PAGA. I am a pro per plaintiff , with a very strong (direct evidence based) case. I settled my 2 EEOC claims with the same defendant. This settlement is currently processed and the amount $$$ is mutually agreed upon.
My goal is to settle the court pending case but I wonder if the state will be entitled for its 75% of the settled amount due to my PAGA allegations?
What is the best settlement strategy under the circumstances? (this is not a class action)
