Louisville Reaches Settlement With Breonna Taylor’s Family
The AP has confirmed that the city of Louisville, Kentucky has agreed to pay the family of Breonna Taylor “millions in a substantial settlement” six months after her shooting death by police.
The wrongful death settlement also comes with a series of police reforms, including that all search warrants must be approved by a commanding officer in advance.
The Louisville Courier-Journal says the settlement will be the largest ever paid by the city. The settlement comes as Kentucky’s AG is expected to announce whether criminal charges will be filed against the officers involved in Taylor’s death.
