Title:Consent judgment
Author:Akinkugbe, O.O.
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:Usually a consent settlement is a compromise and in order to have a binding effect on the parties it is imperative that it should have the blessing of the court. It is the backing of the court that gives the terms of the settlement the force and validity of a judgement or order which must be complied with by the parties. In this article the author examines the limits of consent judgment by a review of available authorities. He also considers the desirability or wisdom of the 'short cut' approach involved in an appeal court acceding to a request to enter a consent judgment which reverses a subsisting judgement or order that fulfils all the requisites of a good res judicata without the appeal court exercising its function of review.
