RESOLUTION NO. R99-1633
A resolution authorizing the Metropolitan Department of Law to compromise and settle the claim of Annie Ruth Cook and Johnny Cook against The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County for eight thousand dollars ($8,000) and directing that this amount be paid from the Self Insured Liability Fund.
Whereas, on March 17, 1998, claimant, Annie Ruth Cook was seated on the passenger side of a Metro ambulance as she was accompanying her father to the hospital. The ambulance was being driven by Harvey Lee Rucker, Jr., a Metropolitan Fire Department employee. The ambulance veered to the right, colliding with an NES pole. As a result of the collision, claimant sustained personal injury; and,
Whereas, the Metropolitan Department of Law believes that the settlement listed in Section 1 is fair and reasonable and recommends that this claim be compromised and settled and that this amount be paid for the Self Insured Liability Fund.
Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Council of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County:
Section 1: The Metropolitan Department of Law is authorized to compromise and settle the claim of Annie Ruth Cook and Johnny Cook for the amount of eight thousand dollars ($8,000) and that said amount should be paid from the Self Insured Liability Fund.
Section 2: This resolution shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
