Nearly 10 years after a triple-fatality drunken driving wreck, an insurer suing in federal court to dodge a $5.3 million DeKalb County jury award has settled its claims with the estate of one of the victims.

Safe Auto Insurance had sought a ruling from the district court that it only owed the $25,000 policy limit for its insured—the owner of the drunken driver’s vehicle—and was not responsible for the excess judgment entered by the state court.
