Court approval is needed no matter the amount of the settlement, the parties involved, and regardless of whether a civil action has been filed.

Fifty years ago, pre injury arbitration agreements were unenforceable in most states. Basically, this was because courts believed that the right to have claims resolved in court was a fundamental constitutional right that could not be waived before a claim arose. But in the 1970's, that view began to change. The federal government and the states enacted laws making arbitration agreement provisions enforceable. The enforceability of arbitration clauses has since then been upheld in all manner of contracts, most controversially in the securities industry and the consumer goods market.
he US Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration recently surveyed state departments of transportation concerning the lack of truck parking capacity. The survey results indicate that at least 37 states have a shortage of official parking for tractor-trailers. In addition, where there is official parking, it is overcrowded. According to the survey, states also report parking shortages in public rest areas, private truck stops, highway weigh stations, commercial areas, and designated pullout areas.
