B-156283 July 20, 1970

The Honorable William D. Ruckelshaus Assistant Attorney General Civil Division Department of Justice

Dear Mr. Ruckelshaus:

We have received your letter of July 8, 1970, WDR:RM:go 77-74-512, requesting our recommendation with regard to the offer of $5,000 by the city of Corpus Christi as a compromise settlement of the claim against the City in the amount of $54,655.70 for deterioration of leased premises.

This office did not retain copies of the voluminous documents forward to your Division together with the referral of this claim. Therefore, we are unable to render any judgment as to the evidentiary admissibility of those documents. However, on the basis of the conclusions of the Assistant United States Attorney, Southern District of Texas, concerning the admissibility of that material, if the Department of the Navy is unable to furnish better evidence supporting the claim, we would have no objection to the acceptance of the compromise offer by the City of Corpus Christi in view of the other considerations set forth in Assistant United States Attorney's memorandum of June 26, 1970.

Sincerely yours,

R. F. KELLER Assistant Comptroller General of the United States
