The bill of the House of Representatives provides that evidence of confessions of responsibility or opinions issued during compromise negotiations is not admissible, that evidence of facts revealed during compromise negotiations is not inadmissible because it was previously disclosed during compromise negotiations. The Senate amendment provides that evidence of behaviour or statements in compromise negotiations are not permitted. The Senate amendment also provides that the rule does not require the exclusion of evidence that is otherwise found simply because it is presented in compromise negotiations. This rule, as has been reported, renders inadmissible evidence of a settlement or attempted settlement of a disputed claim when it is proposed as liability or amount of liability. The purpose of this rule is to promote comparisons that would be discouraged if such evidence were admissible. Moreover, by protecting hypothetical claims, it was a preference for the demanding and a trap for the reckless. Protections for the admissibility of comparative communications are found in the federal and North Carolina rules. In the federal rules of evidence (and most state rules, including North Carolina), Rule 408 (sometimes referred to as the „rule“ in this article) is the rule that deals with the admissibility of settlement negotiations. The rule is that, as you can see, it would be nice to have stronger protection than the type normally granted.

But it has to be negotiated and they may not always agree. Also note that while a FRE 408 agreement does not mean that the critical facts of the case will not be revealed if no settlement is possible and a federal copyright action is brought (a party cannot always prevent the search for relevant records), it may protect certain communications that would otherwise not be protected. and may help protect certain trade secrets or proprietary information that may be disclosed by trying to arrive at a comparison. Rule 408 has been amended to clarify certain issues before the courts about the scope of the rule and to make it more readable. Firstly, the amendment provides that Rule 408 does not prohibit the introduction of statements or conduct during compromise negotiations on a civil dispute by a national regulatory, investigative or enforcement authority in criminal proceedings.
