Lafayette Consolidated Government has settled a lawsuit for 1.4 million dollars. The suit was filed by a resident who's Twin Oaks home suffered erosion damage due to a drainage coulee.

We're told the suit started with an offer to make repairs for about $11,500. After the resident reportedly found other problems the settlement escalated. Over the course of several years, offers and rejections were made.

LCG settled at 1.4 million as opposed to going to court. Councilman William Theriot says going from 11,000 to 1.4 million is a hard deal to stomach.

"One question that comes to the forefront is does this set a precedent for future homeowners and how will that be addressed if it comes up again" says Theriot.

The 1.4 million breaks down to LCG purchasing the home for about $775,000. Theriot says the remainder of the payout covers litigation expenses. LCG Chief Administrative Officer Dee Stanley says the administration has no comment.
