1-23 UPDATE – The $40,000 paid by the city in the federal lawsuit of Sha-ki Staten v. City of Lancaster, Etal is so low I am thinking it may be the city’s deductible and the insurance company paid out more over and above that amount. If you are in jail for 10 months, you lose your job, you lose your house or apartment, you lose your car, you lose your life as you knew it. I can not imagine settling such a strong case for $40,000.
I will put in a Right-to-Know request to the city for their deductible under their police liability policy and will report back.
AGAINST THE VILLAGE
Warning: Explicit language.
This amount seems very low to me. What do you think? Click here for the original article on this site about this federal law suit.
