A resolution authorizing the Metropolitan Department of Law to compromise and settle the claim of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County against Craftmatic America, Inc. and Michael Stahl in the amount of $23,500.

Whereas, on February 9, 2005, the plaintiff John Brady Warner, an employee of the Metropolitan Police Department of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, was operating his police department vehicle in the course and scope of his employment while traveling southbound on Trousdale Drive and was struck by a motor vehicle being driven by Michael Stahl, an employee of Craftmatic America; and

Whereas, a lawsuit was filed by Metropolitan employee and plaintiff, John Brady Warner, in the Third Circuit Court for Davidson County, Tennessee; and

Whereas, the Metropolitan Government has a subrogation interest in this lawsuit relating to the injury-on-duty pay and medical expenses received by employee, John Brady Warner; and
