Motion to approve the settlement of the entire claim for $111,316, inclusive of the statutory attorney's fee and a general release, and to authorize the County Attorney or his designee to execute all documentation necessary to effect the settlement, in the workers' compensation matter of Peter D. Rampone v. Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Florida Statutes, Chapter 440
Florida Statutes, Chapter 112.18
Manatee County Ordinance 16-26
Mr. Rampone was hired by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office on 2/9/88. He retired on 4/19/13. He had been employed as a homicide detective. His date of birth is 3/21/57.
Due to the age of the MSA (Medicare set-aside allocation), we requested an update prior to sending it to CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) for approval. The new MSA was lower and we were able to negotiate for a lesser settlement, albeit a number of months after the mediation. The current negotiated settlement amount is $111,316.
It is in the County's best interest to settle this claim due to the significant exposure. The County Attorney requests the Board approve the settlement for $111,316.00, that includes a general release, and allow the County Attorney or his designee to execute all settlement related documents.
