I tried to call you about the above case, but learned that you were out of town and will not return until Wednesday. You wrote to me on June 1 to ask what authority I had or could get to settle this case, and we discussed the matter on June 3. I have discussed the matter with my client, and I now have authority to offer $28,500 to settle the case. Hopefully, we are now in a position to effect final disposition of this case. My file indicates that $1703 of the plaintiff’s medical expenses were paid by Hines Casualty Company.
You indicated that you may want to go to Louisiana to take the defendant’s deposition, and I will be happy to accede. I shall not go, but I will arrange for local counsel to appear at the deposition.
I note we have several cases set for trial, but this case is not on the list. If we are unable to effect the settlement, I hope we can get the case on the trial docket by at least October or November.
