Mike Brown’s Parent Reach Settlement Against Ferguson

The parents of slain teen Michael Brown have been awarded a secret settlement as a result of a wrongful death civil suit against the city of Ferguson, MO. The settlement amount will remain confidential, stating that by doing so “the terms of the settlement agreement could jeopardize the safety of individuals involved in this matter, whether as witnesses, parties, or investigators.”

The St.Louis Post Dispatch reported that the settlement did not exceed $3M and the judge felt the amount to be split “fair and reasonable” between the two parents Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden.

The suit claims that Wilson used excessive and unreasonable force promoted by the hostile attitudes towards black citizens shows by the Missouri police department.
