Man on Scooter Crashing With Cadillac Triggers $2M or $50000 Bid and Asked Now Settling

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 17 – On Manhattan's East End Avenue near 82nd Street on August 5, 2019 at 6:25 pm, Christoph Rich in a Cadillac struck or was struck by Raoul Goldberger on a scooter. Goldenberg sued in state court, and it was removed to Federal Court. 

  On September 14, 2020 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald held a public proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Things got real very quickly.

Rich lawyer Anna-Lisa Bonventre said, on the public line, that Goldberger's counsel had asked for $2 million, while the insurance carrier is offering $50,000. She also said or implied that Goldberg had been using cocaine, and has a criminal history.   

Goldberger's lawyer asked, What does that matter, given that Goldberger had his kneecap smashed? And who has a cocaine party at 6:25 pm?  

 Rich's lawyer said, I don't attend such parties, I wouldn't know. It was said that addicts don't only use drugs on Saturday. 

 Jump cut to December 2021 - the parties filed a notice of voluntarily dismissal with prejudice. The basis or size of the settlement has not been disclosed.

The case is Goldberger v. Rich, 20-cv-5429 (Buchwald)
