German term or phrase: legal document; informal agreement in principle
Hi,
I need urgent help with the following legal terms into German:

1. legal document

2. informal agreement in principle

Context:
This is about the forced-labour compensation programme.

1.:

"Swiss banks filed legal documents seeking dismissal of lawsuits."
(After claims by victims were filed in court)

2.:

"Informal agreements in principle were reached in Judge Korman's chambers."
( Here I can tell that the first agreement was not a final one; it was only a suggested agreement needing approval.)

Any help is highly appreciated!
Regards,
Silvia

Explanation:
and

2. grundsätzliche Zustimmung, die in Richter Kormans Kanzlei informell erreicht wurde.

This (2) might refer to the following:
www.staempfli.com/verlag/html/updates/Nobel/Update.html:
'Richter Korman hatte am 26. Juli 2000 seine grundsätzliche Zustimmung zum Vergleich gegeben ...'

This is a very sensitive issue. I would keep it as literal as possible! If you have any dates, you'll probably find the corresponding text in German in the Web.
