A resolution authorizing the Metropolitan Department of Law to compromise and settle the claim of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County against Daryl Hutchison in the amount of $18,902.00.
Whereas, on January 23, 2005, as the plaintiff, Christopher Brennan, an employee of the Metropolitan Government, was traveling north on South Graycroft when Mr. Daryl Hutchison entered the intersection from Chadwell Drive and struck the Metro vehicle in the passenger side front door; and
Whereas, a lawsuit was filed by the plaintiff, Christopher Brennan, in the Circuit Court for Davidson County, Tennessee; and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Government has a subrogation interest in this lawsuit relating to the injury-on-duty medical bills and lost wages received by its employee, Christopher Brennan; and
