Parties Settle in Fatal DUI Case
Hennessey v. Pond $2 Million Settlement
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.
