City Looks To Settle $300,000 Negligence Case


There are up to 50 different cases pending against the City of Springfield and coming up in a few weeks, Aldermen will be deciding on one case with over a quarter-million-dollar price tag.

 

Springfield Alderman will consider a negligence case filed in Sangamon County Circuit Court against the Springfield Police Department. The case was filed in 2003 and the city is looking to settle for $300,000.

 

That ordinance is on first reading for Tuesday.

 

This is just one of about 50 pending court cases filed against the city of Springfield, according to Corporation Council Mark Cullen. Cullen says there are a wide variety of cases against the city of Springfield, ranging from accidents, to discrimination and contract disputes.

 

Another case the city hopes to settle involved a couple on a motorcycle injured by a Springfield Police officer back in 2007. The couple is suing the city for $48,000 for injuries plus pain and suffering.

 

Aldermen placed the ordinance settling that 2007 case on the consent agenda for Tuesday’s City council meeting.
