    Most personal injury lawyers charge 33 1/3 percent if the case settles without filing a lawsuit and 40% if a lawsuit is filed.

    That comes from the settlement money that's on the side of defense. So the city isn't paying extra on top of it to the defense.

    They will require X(%) amount of money

    From the prosecution side(even if it's a settlement) the lawyers are paid X amount of money. Since it's probably an ADA handling the case, it's costing the city part of their hourly cost(x an hour) or salary to handle the case, they were on the clock anyway so they're getting paid X amount of money regardless if they handle the case or not)

    So you're both incorrect.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    The attorneys fee comes out of the settlement to the plaintiff.

    The city has staff attorneys or likely a firm on retainer.

    I mixed up the prosecution and defense, my bad.

    In this case, the city is defense, since it's against the city. The city has its own layers that it pays X amount of money per year. So it shouldn't cost the city any extra money for settlements on top of what they already pay the DA office layers.

    Correct. No additional cost are incurred outside the settlement.

    I'm aware the client pays their own attorney's fee. They get a % of whatever the settlement is.

    I'm assuming when they say 230 million dollars, that's the money the city has paid plaintiffs (only) in settling those cases.

    No its a fact. If you continue going trolling, you'll be handed out infractions where the points system automatically bans you. 2 infractions leads to a 3 day ban, 3 infractions a week ban and so on.

    I don't group all conservatives (which you clearly are) together. Again, have all the opinions you want on the coronavirus, George Floyd, the protests, etc but if you continue making blanket statements about liberals in an attempt to bait, troll, etc, infractions will be given.

    I am tired of you making false statements that the left share this uniformed ideology.
