Settlement Revealed In Michael Brown Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Ferguson, MO  (KTRS)  The settlement in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Brown’s parents is for $1.5 million.

Apollo Carey, the city attorney for Ferguson, told the “St. Louis Post Dispatch” that the city’s insurance company paid that amount “on behalf of multiple defendants.” The settlement was approved on Tuesday by a U.S. District judge, however the amount wasn’t disclosed at that time.

Brown’s parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden filed suit against the city of Ferguson, former Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson and former police Officer Darren Wilson in 2015. This was in response the shooting death of the 18-year-old during a police confrontation in 2014.

Brown’s death sparked civil unrest in Ferguson and throughout the St. Louis area.
