The family of Breonna Taylor has reached an agreement in their wrongful death case against the City of Louisville, Kentucky.
According to reports, the city settled the civil case yesterday (Sept. 15) for millions of dollars [quantify!]. The decision to sue the city was made by Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer after the Louisville Metro Police officers executed a “no-knock” warrant at her apartment. This “arrest” back in March left her dead and her boyfriend in the ER with multiple gunshot wounds.
Sam Aguilar, the attorney for Taylor’s family, said, “ The city’s response, in this case, has been delayed and it’s been frustrating, but the fact that they’ve been willing to sit down and talk significant reform was a step in the right direction and hopefully a turning point.”
While he didn’t specify the amount, according to CNN, insiders have said that the settlement was well into the millions.
A grand jury is also set to determine what charges if any, the three policemen – Officers Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly – will face.
