Breonna Taylor: Louisville to pay millions to mom and reform police in wrongful-death lawsuit settlement

Post date:



The city of Louisville, Kentucky has agreed to pay several million dollars to the mother of Breonna Taylor, and install police reforms. The reforms and financial compensation are part of a settlement with Taylor’s family, The Associated Press reports.

The settlement is said to include reforms on how warrants are handled by police, and the city of Louisville is expected to announce it on Tuesday afternoon.

From AP:

The settlement would be the largest sum paid by the city for a police misconduct case, according to a person, who asked to not be identified because the settlement has not been announced publicly.

Taylor’s shooting by police serving a narcotics warrant at her home has sparked months of protests in Louisville and calls nationwide for the officers to be charged in her death. The state’s attorney general, Daniel Cameron, is investigating police actions in the March 13 shooting.

The lawsuit, filed in April by her mother, Tamika Palmer, alleged the police used flawed information when they obtained a “no-knock” warrant to enter the Black woman’s apartment in March. Taylor, 26, was shot several times and police found no drugs at her home.
