Anne Engebretsen pauses as she talks about her mother who died in the I-35W bridge collapse in 2007 at a press conference in Minneapolis Monday, Aug. 23, 2010. An engineering firm that consulted on the Minneapolis bridge that collapsed in 2007 has agreed to pay $52.4 million to settle the last major piece of litigation brought by victims, attorneys said Monday. The settlement averts a trial that had been set for next spring that could have opened San Francisco-based URS Corp. to punitive damages.
