Minneapolis Settles George Floyd's Family Lawsuit for $27M

MINNEAPOLIS — The city of Minneapolis on Friday agreed to pay $27 million to settle a civil lawsuit from George Floyd’s family over the Black man’s death in police custody, as jury selection continued in a former officer’s murder trial. The Minneapolis City Council emerged from closed session to announce the settlement, which includes $500,000 for the neighborhood where Floyd was arrested. Floyd family attorney Ben Crump called a news conference for 1 p.m. that was to include family members. Floyd’s death sparked sometimes violent protests in Minneapolis and beyond and led to a national reckoning on racial justice. The woman, a recent college graduate, said she had seen bystander video of Floyd’s arrest and closely read news coverage of the case.
