Summary: A settlement agreement was purportedly reached, as documented by the emails between the parties’ counsels.

The JCC resolved the conflicts in testimonies of claimant and his former counsel, specifically finding former counsel to be more credible. Concluding claimant merely suffered a case of buyer’s remorse, the JCC GRANTED the E/C motion to enforce.
