I figured it out.  The firms are settling because they want the brokers classified as employees.  The obvious way out is to make them contractors, but that would bring negotiation and more demands from the brokers.

It's kind of funny that the firms feel it's worth it to keep them employees.  But with no change from the status quo, they're still vulnerable to more suits.  Man, what a strange system.

Lots of looks, but no comments so far.  What's up?  Yall agree or disagree?

Interesting point. Never put much behind it because I have focused more on

why the suits were happening.

Money is an important aspect in everyones life, and thats the reason there is always a necessity for it. An example would be the payment of personal injury damages over time in lieu of being in an amount in the settlement.
