Metro paid a total of $1.6 million to settle the claims, according to the documents, which were released in response to a long-standing records request by The Washington Post.
The payments, by the Office of Third Party Claims, range from $333 to $150,000. The names of the recipients are redacted in the documents. The payments do not include settlements from federal lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court.
The third-party claims office handles cases that are not taken to litigation, according to Tracie Dickerson, assistant general counsel. The office typically handles such matters as slip-and-fall incident on a station platform.
For months, The Post has been seeking information from Metro about settlements of the federal lawsuits. Metro has repeatedly said it would respond to The Post’s requests. The agency released the list of third-party payments late Friday but nothing else that The Post requested.
