The proposed settlement of iPayment Chairman and CEO Greg Daily's dispute with California entrepreneur Douglas Shooker is up for approval at a hearing this afternoon that should go smoothly. No parties to the case filed any objections to the wide-ranging deal before last Friday's deadline and Randal Mashburn, the trustee for Daily's estate in the bankruptcy he filed two years ago, says he expects an order "will be entered soon after the hearing in light of the lack of any opposition."
The next step in resolving the legal imbroglio will be iPayment's debt sale that will help fund its purchase of Daily's holdings in the company.
