Cross Bronx Crash Suit Said To Settle For $150,000 Now New Lawyer Says Not So Fast

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 17 – Chandra Barrett was driving on the Cross Bronx Expressway on May 2, 2018 when the door of a landscaping truck for Aspen Landscaping Contracting Inc. came up and hit her windshield. She was injured, and sued.     

     On August 17, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

The defendant insisted that a settlement was already reached, and on the record put the settlement amount at $150,000.

The (new) plaintiff's lawyer said his client didn't want to settle, and scoffed at the representation that the defendant had agreed to pay what it said had been the demand amount.  

 Judge Woods directed both parties to case law on this type of alleged settlement interruptus, and called it a threshhold issue to be resolved before anything else.

The case is Barrett v. Rosario et al., 19-cv-7815 (Woods)
