Settlement: $215,000 and free golf for life

The Associated Press

SPOKANE — The city of Spokane has finally settled with a golfer who sprained an ankle in 2007 when he stepped through a sprinkler lid on the 12th hole at the Esmeralda Golf Course.

Stan L. Peterson is getting $215,000 plus free golf at Spokane city courses for as long as the 72-year-old lives.

The Spokesman-Review reports neither Peterson nor a city spokeswoman is commenting on the settlement that ended a five-year legal case.

The terms were in documents the city council reviewed earlier this week before approving the settlement.
