Explanation

The resolution allows the claimant, Daniel M. Lynch, to sue the state to recover damages as compensation for personal injury and/or property damage allegedly suffered totaling $20,000 or more as set forth in said claim. Payout on the claim, were it to occur, would be made from the Comptroller's Adjudicated Claims account. The total cost to the state cannot be determined as the outcome of this future lawsuit is unknown.

The Out Years

Based on the timing of when the claim is potentially awarded and since it would be one-time in nature there would be no out year fiscal impact.
