OPINION ISSUED NOVEMBER 28, 1989
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY
No appearance by claimant.
Lowell D. Greenwood, Assistant Attorney at Law, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the allegations in the Notice of Claim and the
Claimant seeks $395.00 for damages to her personal property. Trooper 1st Class R.J. Hicks, who was
injured, entered claimant's residence on April 15, 1989. As a result of this officer's injury, claimant's
sofa was severely damaged by blood. In its Answer, respondent admits the validity and amount of
the claim and states that it was not paid because the respondent does not have a fiscal method
available with which to pay this claim.
In view of the foregoing, the Court makes an award in the amount sought.
Award of $395.00.
