Metro is settling a lawsuit against its insurance broker that stemmed from the 2009 Red Line crash that killed nine people.
After the crash, Metro sued insurance broker Aon, which put together the insurance that covers the transit agency's liability in accidents. Metro claimed Aon failed to advise it about vulnerabilities in its coverage. The agency reportedly believed that if Aon had done its job correctly Metro would have been able to avoid $9 million in expenses.
The lawsuit asked for more than $9 million.
Both sides asked a judge to dismiss the case. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel confirmed the case had been settled but said he could not comment on the details.
A spokesman for Aon declined to comment.
