Newton spends $427,203 on settlements

Falling trees and vehicle collisions by city employees accounted for most of the $427,203 in settlements that Newton paid out in the past three years.

Although two high-profile claims totaling more than $1 million were filed against the city in recent months by Police Department employees, these types of legal actions are rare, based on three years of data provided to the Globe by the city attorney’s office.
