Law (general) / very straight mouth
English term or phrase: (very) straight mouth
_ Was there a written agreement?

_ Well, there has been very straight mouth with the agreement, but let me say that most agreements were verbal.

Se trata de una oración que aparece en la transcripción de una audiencia judicial. Parecería que quiere decir que el tema "se había conversado" solamente, pero no logro encontrar la expresión en inglés así tal cual aparece aquí, así que ni siquiera sé si existe o si la transcripción está mal.

Partiendo de la base de que la frase no está bien redactada en inglés, tal vez sea una mala traducción de una frase equivalente a "tight-lipped", En otras palabras, "no se ha dicho mucho del contrato, pero muchos de los acuerdos fueron verbales."

If you describe someone as tight-lipped, you mean that they are unwilling to give any information about something.
