Settling Up

In February of 2001 Angels Flight had the fatal accident that's kept it sidelined ever since. The legal actions have been flying back and forth for five years now, but it looks like everything is finally wrapping up. In this report to City Council (PDF) the CRA says that the various parties have come to a settlement on who's responsible for what percentages of the money that had to be paid out.

The agency will be getting reimbursed $450,000 of the $875,000 it had previously paid. The major chunk of the money coming back will be from by the construction company (or its insurers) that had been responsible for renovating the funicular.

I don't know that any of this has anything to do with when Angels Flight will finally return to operation, but I imagine it can't hurt to get all the old bad air cleared out.
