During litigation on any matter, you may win the case, and have the judge approve your argument or you may settle a case with your opponents. The terms of the court order or the settlement are important. They may create obligations on both parties to the litigation and may require you to take specific steps or actions.
If you fail to adhere to those obligations can lead to your agreement becoming set aside and made no longer enforceable. Such was the case with a woman who worked for the U.S. Army. She was subjected to a removal action and appealed her removal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
