A $1 million settlement was reached on May 1 in Sutton v. Glen Ridge Country Club for a 59-year-old woman seriously injured when she was struck by a golf cart at the Glen Ridge Country Club.

On Sept. 3, 2018, Debra Sutton was struck by a golf cart while standing in front of the country club’s pro shop. At the time of the accident, the golf cart was under the control of Thomas Forte, an employee of the country club. Forte parked the golf cart facing the pro shop with the engine on while he loaded a cooler with ice and water. While he was loading the cooler, a case of water fell onto the accelerator causing it to hit Sutton, who was standing 10 feet away, said Sutton’s counsel, Bruce H. Nagel and Michael J. Paragano of Nagel Rice in Roseland.
