- Settlement: $2,100,000.00 On November 13, 2015, plaintiff Luz Godizano was a standing passenger on the 14R SFMTA bus, traveling northeast on Mission Ave. As the bus approached the intersection at Geneva Ave., the traffic light changed from green to yellow. A vehicle driven by defendant Daniel Monge turned left, southeast, through the intersection. The operator of the bus, Julio Zamudio, failed to brake and slow the bus as it approached the intersection. When Mr. Monge turned left through the intersection, Mr. Zamudio slammed on the brakes of the bus. The sudden deceleration caused Mrs. Godizano to fall and hit her head on the metal console at the front of the bus. Mr. and Mrs. Godizano sued the City and County of San Francisco, the SFMTA, and Daniel Antonio Monge Oliva and Iris Ivette Monge. Mr. and Mrs. Godizano alleged that Zamudio, and thereby, CCSF as a common carrier, was negligent in the operation of the bus and the remaining defendants were liable for Mrs. Godizano's injuries. Plaintiff's asserted that Zamudio was negligent and violated MUNI's policy that an operator must slow down when approaching an intersection, especially after the light turned yellow, insisted on the right-of-way, and did not ensure that he could clear the intersection before entering it. Mr. Monge was comparatively negligent for turning into the bus' path. Mrs. Godizano suffered a traumatic brain injury, including subdural hemorrhages, subdural hematomas, post-traumatic hydrocephalus, and spinal injuries. Following her surgeries, Mrs. Godizano, retired at the time, regularly walked for exercise, and volunteered at her church and minor daughter's school. The defendants agreed to pay $2.1 milliion to settle the case. The City and County of San Francisco agreed to pay $2 million on behalf of itself and the Monge defendants agreed to pay $100,000., 2017
- To begin to establish trust with parties and counsel, and help them feel at ease throughout the process, a mediator may want to remember the neurochemistry and cognitive functions that apply. Oxytocin, dopamine, and testosterone, at appropriate levels, have been found to correlate with feelings of empathy, control, and focus. These feelings are helpful in achieving resolution of a dispute. Cognitive ease assists decision making. To help create these conditions, mediators can practice certain techniques that may assist in reaching the tipping point in bringing about a resolution., Author, Creating Chemistry in Mediation, Mediation, 2017
