How can we, as plaintiffs, who have to stop litigating not end up responsible for the defense costs? We never even realized this was a possibility when we sued.

If you are a plaintiff and dismiss your case years into litigation, but before a trial, is there a way to not be responsible for the defendant's attorney fees (aside from the defense agreeing to this)?

We need help with how we should word the motion filed to withdraw vs dismiss or what to call it? What is the best way to go about doing this to be 100% sure we are not responsible for the defendant's attorney fees and can the defense come back and try to sue us after we either withdraw or...

you really want to have an attorney contact them to try to get some money and then when they say no, to ask if I can get them to drop/dismiss the case, we would want a release agreeing that each side shall bear their own costs.
