California insurance agency pays $21,000 settlement in loose change

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Aug 7, 2014

A California insurance company has paid off a $21,000 settlement to an elderly man in loose change.

“There’s over 16 buckets of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. It’s going to take us at least, conservatively, one week to count that whole amount of money,” Los Angeles attorney Antonio Gallo explains to CBS Los Angeles

Andres Carrasco, 76, filed a lawsuit two years ago against his former insurance agency, Adriana’s Insurance, after he was allegedly assaulted by one of its employees. Recently, the company finally agreed to settle the case, but did so in a surprising way.

Adriana's Insurance executives have not publicly commented about why they chose to insultingly pay the settlement in several buckets of coins, but Carrasco complains to CBS News, “It’s too heavy."
