RESOLUTION NO. RS2003-1585
A resolution authorizing the Metropolitan Department of Law to compromise and settle the claim of Carolyn D. Carlton against The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County in the amount of $10,000, and directing that this amount be paid from the Self Insured Liability Account.
Whereas, on April 17, 2002, the plaintiff’s vehicle was struck by a vehicle owned by the Metropolitan Government and while being driven by a Metropolitan Government employee; and
Whereas, a lawsuit was filed by the plaintiff in the Third Circuit Court for Davidson County, Tennessee; and
Whereas, after investigation, the Department of Law believes the settlement amount as set forth in Section 1 is fair and reasonable and recommends that this case be compromised and settled and that the amount of $10,000.00 be paid from 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 Department of Law is authorized to compromise and settle the lawsuit of Carolyn D. Carlton v. Metropolitan Government, No. 03C-790 for the sum of $10,000, and directing that this amount be paid from the Self Insured Liability Account.
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.
