SECTION 27-1-16.2


§ 27-1-16.2 Court approved settlements.

Notwithstanding any provisions of law to the contrary, a person, corporation, or other entity who has resolved its liability to the receiver in a judicially-approved good faith settlement shall not be liable for claims for contribution or equitable indemnity regarding matters addressed in the settlement. The settlement does not discharge any other joint tortfeasors unless its terms provide for this discharge, but it reduces the potential liability of joint tortfeasors by the amount of the settlement.
