I am looking for case-level settlement information (amounts, time it took, etc) for an academic research project. I'm not picky on the specific area of law -- any area would be fine, provided that I can observe the actual settlement amounts, the initial claimed damages, and the timelines.
There are disclosure databases for medical malpractice settlements, and class action lawsuit settlements. Government lawsuit (against or by the government) settlement usually have to be a matter of public record.
Complete and representative databases of other private party lawsuit settlements are hard to obtain because most settlements make the terms of the settlement and its amount confidential.
