The American Civil Liberties Union and the city of Denver of have reached a $200,000 settlement in a lawsuit filed after the largest mass arrest during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch approved the deal Wednesday, ending a suit brought by people who said they were wrongly arrested at a protest during the convention.
The Denver Post reports ( http://bit.ly/rpyIK9) the lawsuit involved 93 plaintiffs. It was the last outstanding suit against the city for its role in hosting the convention where Barack Obama received the Democratic presidential nomination.
Most of the $200,000 settlement will go to the lawsuit's original eight plaintiffs, with $20 each going to the rest. The agreement also requires additional police training.
