A judge Tuesday approved a nearly $3.4million settlement in a suit filed on behalf of five children injured in a carnival ride accident at the 2008 Calaveras County Fair.

According to court documents, Brass Ring Amusements, Chance Rides Manufacturing and North American Amusements will pay $3.375 million to Robert and Deena Milligan, whose five children were injured in the accident. Slightly more than $1 million of that will go to Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, the law firm that represented the Milligans.
