After the death of Lexa Cleland, there were many milestones. First came the arrest of the drunken driver who killed her in December 2010, then his sentencing 16 months later and, finally, this week, the $15.6 million settlement with the South Side restaurant that served him the alcohol. Mark and Nicole Cleland said Wednesday that they hoped the denouement of the legal battle with Hofbrauhaus would give them "a sense of an end of a chapter" in the death of their 7-year-old daughter.
