Michael Brown’s parents close to reaching wrongful death settlement

On Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Michael Brown’s parents are close to reaching a settlement with the city of Ferguson in the wrongful death lawsuit they leveled against Ferguson for the unarmed teen’s shooting death.

The initial suit was asking for $75,000 in addition to punitive damages and a judicial order against police tactics that unfairly target minorities. This is after the Justice Department issued a study that found that Ferguson law enforcement employed policies and routines that undermined “community trust, especially among African Americans.”

Anthony Gray, the attorney for Brown’s mother, Lezley McSpadden, declined to comment on the settlement, and details of a conference call between Judge E. Richard Webber and lawyers for Brown’s parents, former Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson and Darren Wilson were sealed in the district court.
