Wrongful Death Settlement In Muni Bus Case

On March 11, 2004, Betty White was hit by a MUNI bus while walking her dog in the Marina district after the bus ran a stop sign. She died of massive brain injuries the following day. Because of our work, MUNI agreed to place a permanent memorial bench in Moscone Park, in addition to paying a substantial monetary settlement to her surviving family. At the time of her death, she was lobbying for more stop signs on Chestnut at Webster and Buchanan, out of concern for the safety of young mothers and children crossing the street to Moscone Park.
