A $1 million settlement was reached on July 23 on behalf of two co-plaintiffs, Brenda Billups and Hakim Hampton, for injuries sustained in a four-car motor vehicle accident in Somerville four years ago.

The determined at-fault defendants were Theresa Rudnicki-Jones of Bridgewater and Luke Fawcett of Somerville, who paid equal amounts of the settlement to Billups and Hampton, according to their lawyers. Billups was represented by Geoffrey C. Arlen of the Arlen Law Firm in Hillsborough, while Hampton was represented by Daniel N. Epstein of Epstein Ostrove in Edison.
