California GOP settles lawsuit for $11 million after man left quadriplegic in 2016 crash
The California Republican Party this week agreed to an $11 million settlement with a man left quadriplegic after being struck on the freeway by a GOP campaign worker.
The law firm representing the victim said that the settlement, the maximum amount available under the California GOP’s insurance policy, “helps expose the ongoing dangers of political campaigns which have become big business, with goals far beyond a single election.
“Politicians have responsibilities just like any other employer, and this settlement ensures that political campaigns will not escape accountability or receive special treatment,” Chris Aitken of Aitken Aitken Cohn said in a statement.
