Except that complaints have to be very formal because they're
filed with a court. A settlement is a private agreement between
parties, and it can be as formal or informal as they want. In
any case, there is no reason that the fine details need to be
made public, and the general tendency of lawyers is to keep
things quiet, because what you don't say can't hurt you.
