Parties Settle in Fatal DUI Case

Hennessey v. Pond $2 Million Settlement

The Legal Intelligencer


CMJ also contended that Hennessey died instantaneously, and disputed the plaintiff's economic damages.

Following mediation, Hennessey and the parties were not able to settle the case; however, before trial, the parties settled for $2 million. Pond, who was insured by State Farm, contributed $250,000, Kenny's Bar contributed $1.375 million and CMJ provided $375,000. Both Kenny's Bar and CMJ had AmTrust North America as their primary insurers, and CMJ had an excess policy with AIG.
