Settlement in Chimpanzee Attack

Settlement in Chimpanzee Attack


Charla Nash was mauled by a chimpanzee in February 2009. The attack caused her to lose both hands and undergo a face transplant surgery. Ms. Nash's brother filed suit against the chimpanzee's owner, Sandra Herold, and sought $50 million. According to Ms. Herold's attorney, the two sides are close to a settlement which will be confidential. Ms. Herold passed away in 2010, and the settlement will come from her estate.
