Reports: Stew Leonard Sr. in Boat Accident Settlement

A settlement has been reached in a wrongful death lawsuit filed after a former Westporter died almost three years ago when swept off Stew Leonard Sr.‘s boat by a 12-foot-high “rogue wave” in the Caribbean, according to published reports today.

Attorneys representing Barbara Speranza, wife of Robert Speranza, told reporters a filing was made today in Bridgeport Superior Court to withdraw the suit but that they could not disclose the dollar amount of the settlement due to a confidentiality agreement, The Hour of Norwalk and Connecticut Post reported.

When the suit was filed two years ago, one of the attorneys, Joel T. Flaxon, said Barbara Speranza was seeking compensatory and punitive damages in the “millions of dollars.” (See WestportNow March 7, 2012)

Shortly after the Aug. 16, 2011 accident, Westporter Stew Leonard Jr. said that his family has been devastated by the loss of their longtime friend. “My father is in shock,” he said, “and I know Bob Speranza’s family is in shock.” (See WestportNow Aug. 19, 2011)
